Glen Boldware, 47

Glen Boldware, a 47-year-old black man, was shot to death by an LAPD officer in the 1800 block N. Sawtelle Blvd. in West Los Angeles about 2:15 a.m. Friday, Jan. 4. Officer Peter Mah was patrolling the area in an unmarked car when he noticed Boldware, who allegedly was stealing from a lumber yard.

Mah followed Boldware as he drove north on Sawtelle Boulevar, and when he noticed he was being followed, Boldware allegedly stopped his car, stepped out and walked up to Mah's car carrying a lighter that looked like a small-caliber pistol. Boldware was shot several times and died instantly.

(The LAPD initially described Boldware as holding a gun.)
