Christopher Littlejohn, 37, was initially arrested by SWAT officers in a separate assault case in Beverly Hills on July 23 in which he pointed a gun at a person in a residential neighborhood, Beverly Hills Police Sgt. Shan Davis said.
…Last year on a visit to Israel, LAPD Deputy Chief Michael Downing said the attack was being investigated as an organized crime-related incident.
“The two victims had been kneecapped,” he said during a police conference covered by the Israeli media. “They were targeted as part of a stern warning linked to a criminal organization.”
