According to ABC7
A man was shot and killed in an encounter with Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies in South Los Angeles Monday afternoon.
The incident happened just after 3 p.m. in the area of Budlong Avenue and 109th Place.
Monday evening, Sheriff's Department Lt. Brandon Dean offered a summary of what investigators had learned so far about the incident:
It began when deputies who were driving in the area saw a man riding a bicycle and decided to pull him over for a vehicle code violation in the area of 110th and Budlong.
The man dropped the bike and ran off. Deputies caught up to him on 109th. At that point, they say, the man fought with the deputies and punched one of them in the face.
He had been carrying some clothing in his hands and he dropped it to the ground. The deputies spotted a handgun among the items of clothing he had dropped. At that point was when the shooting occurred.
It was not immediately clear whether the man had been reaching for the gun. Investigators say they have to conduct interviews with the deputies to clarify the incident.
