A man wanted for a shooting in a West Hollywood apartment building in April that prompted a nine-hour standoff has been apprehended, authorities said.
Joshua Findley, 31, was taken into custody on Tuesday, May 9, in connection with the April 7 shooting in the 7100 block of Santa Monica Boulevard, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.
Findley was being held on a parole violation and various crimes including illegal possession of a firearm.
The shooting occurred about 8:15 a.m. that day when a man — later identified as Findley — allegedly fired multiple shots inside a West Hollywood apartment complex where he lived, injuring a woman in an adjacent unit, authorities said.
Deputies and a SWAT team were sent to the scene, and an hours-long standoff ensued before investigators determined that the suspect was gone. Included in the response was a Sheriff’s Department helicopter that landed on La Brea Avenue, blocking traffic.
