Sheriff's homicide detectives were assisting Azusa police in investigating a fatal shooting involving the Azusa Police Department Sunday.
The shooting took place at about 12:50 p.m. in the 900 block of West Sierra Madre Avenue, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
Azusa Police Department Officers responded to a domestic dispute call. When they arrived, they saw the suspect had a large kitchen knife in his hand. The officers gave the man multiple commands to place the knife down, but he did not comply.
The suspect walked in and out of his home multiple times, looking frustrated and irritated.
The suspect then rushed towards the officers and the officers deployed less lethal munitions which were ineffective.
