Man dies after officer-involved shooting in South L.A.
The man, thought to be in his late 20s, was walking Friday night near Jefferson Boulevard at Paloma Street in South Los Angeles when he was stopped by officers.
Los Angeles Police Department officials called the nature of the encounter "routine," but said the exact reason remains under investigation.
The man pulled out a gun, officials said, and the officers fired, striking him twice. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died during surgery Saturday.
