Man Shot to Death By Deputy During Knife Fight

Posted: Updated:
West Hollywood, CA -

(FOX 11 / CNS) A 24-year-old man was shot to death in a confrontation with Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies at a West Hollywood building where a knife fight had taken place, authorities said today.

Three other men were hospitalized in stable condition with stab wounds in connection with the same incident at an apartment building in the 900 block of Palm Avenue, said sheriff's Deputy Lillian Peck.

Peck said deputies responding to a call of an assault with a knife around 9:30 p.m. Monday were confronted by two men as they approached the apartment. A fight inside the apartment spilled outside and drew in the two responding deputies, added Deputy Crystal Hernandez.

The deputy-involved shooting occurred during that confrontation, and the 24-year-old suspect later died at a hospital, Peck said. It was not disclosed whether one or both deputies opened fire.

A large knife was discovered at the scene, and investigations are continuing, she said.
