RE: Call for Transparent Investigation of Fatal Shooting in Koreatown

Dear Mayor Bass, Supervisor Mitchell, Councilmember Soto-Martínez, and Chief

We, the undersigned organizations that represent the Koreatown and Korean American
communities of Los Angeles, write to express our grave concerns over the recent fatal
shooting of Mr. Yong Yang by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). We
respectfully request your leadership in obtaining a prompt, transparent, and very
thorough investigation of the incident over a mental health call that occurred at the 400
block of South Gramercy Place in Koreatown, Los Angeles on May 2, 2024.

Collectively, we seek answers as to what transpired to warrant the shooting and request
the following:

  • An immediate, detailed investigation involving the LAPD and the Psychiatric Mobile Response Team (PMRT) of the LA County Department of Mental Health (DMH);
  • Transparency with the entire investigative process such as timeline, body cam footage released to the public, every recourse in dealing with the incident, etc.; and
  • A community briefing hosted by the LAPD to share investigation outcomes and
  • collaboratively discuss how we can avoid similar incidents.

We would greatly appreciate your prompt attention and ask for your support as we
grieve the loss of human life and move forward as a community.
