LYNWOOD, Calif.—Authorities are investigating the shooting death by a sheriff's deputy of a man suspected of breaking into a south Los Angeles County business. Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Art Spencer says the man was shot late Friday at the Lynwood business when he reached into his waistband for what turned out to be a jagged piece of concrete.
Spencer says the deputy involved in the shooting and a colleague were responding to a report of someone breaking into the business. The colleague went behind the business while the deputy remained out front. When the suspect emerged from a broken front window and encountered the deputy, he reached for the roughly eight-inch long piece of concrete.
Spencer says the deputy thought the man was arming himself and shot him in the torso.
