LASD Sheriff Alex Villanueva said he saw the video and had"grave concerns" about the shooting. The officer involved has been relieved of duty pending an investigation. The man's family has since filed a federal wrongful death lawsuit against the county,

The Los Angeles Timesreported."I'm currently with someone who is telling me they're suicidal," Ordaz's sister told a 911 dispatcher on March 14, the day of the shooting."I was just wondering if you could guide me on what I can do to help them."

Ordaz's sister told police that she was sitting with him in a car outside of the family's home. She said Ordaz was armed with a 12-inch kitchen knife and that he might be on methamphetamines, a stimulant. She said that he had also mentioned"suicide by cop," which made her"afraid" for his life.
