LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Los Angeles police officers responding to a family dispute fatally shot a man holding a rifle today in the Vermont Knolls area of South L.A.
Officers were called about 1:20 p.m. to a home at Grand Avenue and 102nd Street on a report of a family dispute, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Drake Madison told City News Service.
“When a man exited the residence holding a black rifle, an officer-involved shooting occurred,” Madison said.
The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene, he said. No one else was injured.
Investigators were working to determine whether the weapon was “a functioning rifle or an Airsoft rifle,” Madison said.
