Police made four arrests this weekend in the downtown area of Los Angeles around East 3rd Street. The suspects were all in possession of Mech. A fifth suspect attempted to flee the scene after assaulting an officer, when police opened fire. It took 63 bullets to stop the assailant. Police assumed he was wearing kevlar armour but upon inspecting his body, none was found. The man was said to still be alive and lashing out violently. From his wounds a shimmering silvery fluid was said to be leaking, among being covered in blood. Three other incidents involving the drug have been reported this month, marking the rise of Mech use in LA.
