boy Seized in Drug Raid Dies
A 16-year-old boy apprehended in a police raid on a South-Central cocaine “rock house” died Monday a few minutes after wrestling with four officers, a Los Angeles police spokeswoman said today.
Cory Robinson, 16, police said, was “immediately combative” with the officers who ordered him from his hiding place in the attic of the house at 549 W. 109th place. The officers who subdued Robinson did not apply upper body restraints or a so-called “chokehold,” the spokeswoman said. Three adult suspects and one juvenile also were arrested at the house.
