LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Police Department has named the officer who was angry with teens walking on his yard and discharged a gun during a scuffle with them outside his home in suburban Anaheim.

Police spokesman Captain Andy Neiman said Monday Officer Kevin Ferguson is back on the job but not working the streets.

Officials tell the Los Angeles Times (https://lat.ms/2m2ww7n) that Ferguson works at the Hollywood Division but did not provide details of his assignment.

State records obtained by the newspaper show Ferguson joined the force in 2013.

Los Angeles and Anaheim police are investigating the confrontation last week that stemmed from an ongoing dispute.

No serious injuries were reported from the incident. Two teens were arrested.

Ferguson’s lawyer has said the officer feared one teen had a weapon.
