The man killed in a police shootout in Pacific Palisades earlier this month was the same man involved in an officer-involved shooting at Red Hill last month, police confirm.

On August 6, police shot 51-year-old James Pickard Jr. on Komo Mai Drive.

HPD said the suspect had driven into a police car then reversed toward two other officers.

According to police, Pickard also tried to run over an officer with a stolen car in the Red Hill area on July 24.

The officer fired a shot before jumping out of the way.
