Heightened security measures for the Super Bowl – NBC Los Angeles


It’s an exciting weekend, but of course safety is a priority.

Local law enforcement is teaming up to try to prevent incidents, like the West Hollywood shooting that injured rapper Kodak Black.

Dozens of people dispersed as gunfire rang out around 2.45am on Saturday.

And while this party isn’t affiliated with the Super Bowl or the NFL, it was one of many big, high-profile events that are expected during Super Bowl weekend.

The shooting happened after a party allegedly thrown for Justin Beiber after a concert.

Rapper Kodak Black was one of four people shot dead early Saturday morning.

Witnesses say police arrived at the scene for what appeared to be crowd and traffic control reasons.

“They flashed their white lights to get people moving, then just as it happened I heard bang bang bang, like four bangs… people scattered all over the place,” Anthony said. Harris, a witness.

The shooting is exactly the kind of incident law enforcement is trying to avoid over Super Bowl weekend.

LAPD says they’ve been working on a safety plan for more than two years now, in partnership with the Inglewood Police Department and the LA County Sheriff’s Department.

I-Team NBC4 learned that Federal Law Enforcement is included in the Safety and Security Plan; plus, additional K-9 units, SWAT, a mounted patrol, and even a SoFi Stadium dive team in hopes of eliminating violent crime or threats.
