Los Angeles sheriff's deputies fatally shoot armed man
LYNWOOD - Two Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies have shot and killed an armed suspect in a shooting captured on video that appears to show a man being hit with gunfire as he walked away from the deputies.
Authorities said the deputies were responding to reports of a man walking in the city of Lynwood Saturday and firing a gun into the air.
Sheriff's Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez said in a statement that when the deputies encountered the man in front of a gas station, they ordered him to drop the gun but he did not comply. She said witnesses reported seeing the suspect turn and point the gun at the deputies before they opened fire.
The video shows the deputies firing several rounds after the man fell to the ground.
