UNIVERSAL CITY — Authorities on Tuesday opened multiple investigations to determine what prompted two Burbank police officers to open fire on a fleeing suspect wanted on attempted-murder charges in Indiana.
The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office and Burbank police officials are investigating the officer-involved shootings that occurred Monday after 30-year-old Steven Satterly led police on a multi-county pursuit, ending near an entrance to Universal Studios.
The incident, caught on live television by news helicopters, follows months of scrutiny into the Burbank Police Department. Federal officials are investigating excessive-use-of-force allegations. A number of reform measures have been put in place, and more are being considered. Internal disciplinary notices were also sent out this past week.
