Los Angeles Police Department officers shot and killed a man believed to be involved in a historic Central South domestic violence case, police said.
The man, whose identity has not been released, was shot shortly before 11 a.m. near the intersection of 23rd and Wall Street, according to Detective Meghan Aguilar.
Aguilar said officers arrived to assist with a domestic violence call and they saw the man, similar to the domestic abuse suspect’s description, with a folding knife outside the court apartment building to which the police were called.
According to Aguilar, two officers opened fire, although it remains unclear how many shots were fired.
Aguilar added that a man in his 30s was injured and the Los Angeles Fire Department declared the man dead at the scene.
“At the moment, we’re not sure exactly what happened between the suspect and the officers,” Aguilar said. “What we’re going to do is watch the body-dressing video and of course, interview those officers and any witnesses.”
Video of the incident will be released within 45 days, Aguilar announced.
At the end of Saturday, another man with a knife was shot by the police in South Central History, according to LAPD.
