LA cop who said sniper shot him ‘made it up’

Fiji Sun - - World News -

Au­thor­i­ties in Los An­ge­les say a sher­iff’s deputy who claimed he had been shot by a sniper ac­tu­ally cut two fake bul­let holes in his uni­form with a knife and made the whole thing up. Po­lice launched a mas­sive man­hunt last Wed­nes­day af­ter An­gel Reinosa called in to say he was pinned down by gun­fire.

“I’m tak­ing shots from the north of the Lan­caster he­li­pad, I’m hit in the right shoul­der,” said a fran­tic Mr Reinosa.

“My shirt’s ripped to the right. I think it’s from the apart­ment win­dow.”

Mr Reinosa has been re­lieved of his du­ties and is fac­ing a crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
