Off-duty LA Cop Filmed Pulling His Gun And Opening Fire At A Gang Of Teens

By Oladipupo Mojeed

Crowds of people gathered on Wednesday night in California to protest against an off-duty cop who was filmed pulling and firing his gun as he scuffled with a 13-year-old outside his home in Anaheim.

The protests happened after a video that was filmed on Tuesday afternoon went viral showing the confrontation between the off-duty LAPD cop and a large gang of teens who he had apparently accused of walking on his lawn.

The confrontation ends with the officer pulling his gun out and firing a shot that did not hit anyone as the teens fled.

Before that, the officer was filmed struggling with one teen who he accused of threatening to shoot him, then scuffling with the entire group of teens outside his home.

The unnamed officer was trying to cuff and arrest the apparently unarmed teens when it escalated into a fight. When more officers arrived, the gang of teens were detained by cops and two were arrested.

It is unclear if the officer meant to fire his gun or if it went off accidentally as he grabbed one of the teenagers. He has not been arrested.


There now exist two claims at the heart of the fight: the officer says the teens threatened to shoot him, but the teen said he threatened to ‘sue’ him. The teens accuse the officer of calling a girl who was walking on his lawn a ‘c***’.

After a few minutes in the video, the man was pushed over by two other teens in the group, and shortly after pulled a gun from his waistband with one hand while still holding onto the 13-year-old.

The incident took place in in Anaheim, California, near Loara High School about 2:40pm.

Father of the boy, Johnny Dorscht, also shared pictures with showing the bruises his son suffered.

He also identified his son, the 13-year-old boy in the video who was restrained and almost shot by the off-duty LAPD cop, as Christian Dorscht.

“I’m pretty p***ed off about what happened,’ he told the Orange County Weekly.

“You could talk to anybody, my son has very good manners. He does good in school and isn’t disrespectful or anything like that.

“We’re going to find legal representation and be suing. This is B.S. Even the cops, when they got there, they had all the kids down. They didn’t even go after the guy.’

They showed he had a mark above his eyebrow, as well as a series of small bruises along his shoulder and neck.

Christian’s mum, Alma Jimenez, who earlier refused to identify herself or her son also talked on Wednesday night.

“I just want to say how disgusted I am by that individual for the negligence he committed with my son,” she was heard saying in a video posted to her Facebook page.

Amid the protest – which took place about two blocks from Disneyland – Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait said there will be a ‘thorough, impartial’ investigation into the incident.
