ROSEMEAD - Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies shot and killed a man suspected of stabbing a woman with a sword after he charged deputies with a metal pole and injured one of them in an empty home, authorities said Wednesday. Deputies answering a call found a woman with stab wounds in Rosemead late Tuesday night and tracked down the suspect about 45 minutes later in a nearby house under construction, Deputy Derrick Thompson said.


Authorities said the man then came out of a bathroom at deputies with the pole and hit one of them, injuring his forearm, Lt. Liam Gallagher said. Deputies then opened fire and killed the man, he said.
The injured deputy had stitches in his arm and was released, Gallagher said.
The stabbing victim was in serious condition at a hospital with several wounds from a sword, authorities said.
Rosemead is about 10 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.
