The Los Angeles County Office of Independent Review is investigating the Inglewood Police Department after three officer involved shootings in the past three months.The Inglewood City Council voted to hire the agency in response to the outrage over the most recent shooting. Postal worker Kevin Wicks, 38, was shot and killed July 21 by Inglewood police after officers say he pointed a gun at them.

Relatives and community activists say if Wicks was holding a gun it was for his own safety and officers should not have opened fire.
