Police Shoot and Kill Armed Pacoima Man

Los Angeles police shot and killed an armed man Friday when they responded to a domestic violence call in Pacoima.

The fatal officer-involved shooting occurred around 1 a.m. in front of a home in the 13000 block of Corcoran Street, a Los Angeles police captain at the scene told a Newsreel camera crew.

When police responded to the domestic violence call they encountered an armed individual and an officer-involved shooting occurred, police Capt. Jerry Rodriguez told Newsreel. More than one officer fired on the suspect, Rodriguez said.

The suspect died as a result of the gunfire, Rodriguez said. No officers or other people were injured, only the suspect with the weapon, Rodriguez said.

A group of adults, children and a dog were inside the home, where the suspect had threatened them, Newsreel reported.

After as many as 11 people and the dog were evacuated, multiple police officers who were involved in the shooting were requested to respond to a command post, according to reports from the scene.

Residents on Corcoran Street, Borden Avenue and Phillipi Avenue were aware of police in their neighborhood.
