chief beck ezell ford caseDespite public appeals by the city’s mayor, the county district attorney and others, no new witnesses to the fatal Los Angeles police shooting of a mentally ill black man have come forward to help investigators, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said Thursday.

Beck told reporters that the department is continuing to ask the county coroner’s office not to release details about the death of 25-year-old Ezell Ford Jr. while investigators seek new witnesses. He said it is important for any witnesses not to be influenced by details about the incident that they could have learned about in the news before they talk to police.

Ford was shot Aug. 11 by two LAPD officers in South L.A. after the officers reported he got into a physical struggle with one of them. Amid calls for transparency in the investigation by neighborhood activists, Mayor Eric Garcetti said he has ordered the chief to release the coroner’s autopsy report on Ford by year’s end whether or not other witnesses come forward.

Beck reiterated Thursday that the report would be made public by year’s end.
