Los Angeles police shot a man in Sun Valley on Saturday after responding to a home where a family dispute was taking place, authorities said.

Officers responded to a home in the 7400 block of Craner Avenue, where a man had threatened family members. As he was leaving the premises after 7 p.m., at least one officer shot him, said Officer Karima Tahir.

The man was transported to a nearby hospital.

KTLA Channel 5 reported that the man appeared to be drunk and had brandished a knife at the home. The man allegedly pulled out a handgun when he approached police in the backyard, according to what police told the station.

Tahir was unable to provide any additional details.
