Over the past week, the APD Homicide Detail, assisted by virtually every Detail within the Department has been engaged in an exhaustive effort to locate and safely recover 23 year old kidnap victim Brianne Deese and arrest murder/kidnap suspect Luke Lampers.
Late last night Detectives received word Brianne had escaped from her captor and was in San Diego. Detectives and Investigators responded immediately and recovered Brianne. The continuing investigation led them to a motel in the 4000 block of Taylor in San Diego. Assistance was requested from SDPD.
Lampers was seen arriving at the motel in a suspected stolen vehicle. APD Crime Task Force investigators contacted Lampers and a foot pursuit ensued at which time an Officer Involved Shooting occurred. Lampers was struck and transported to a San Diego area hospital. His condition is not known at this time.
The circumstances surrounding the OIS will be investigated by the San Diego Police Department. The APD Major Incident Review Team (MIRT) will conduct a concurrent administrative investigation.
