Los Angeles police shot a man when he allegedly stabbed a SWAT officer with scissors after barricading himself inside an office at the Wal-Mart in Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza mall.

Special Weapons and Tactics officers responded to reports of a theft suspect at the store at 4101 S. Crenshaw Blvd. at about 1:20 p.m. Monday and found the man, an African American about 40 years old, barricaded inside the store's loss prevention office, said Los Angeles Police Officer Julianne Sohn.



When SWAT officers entered the office at 6:25 p.m., the man allegedly stabbed an officer in the hand and at least one officer fired, wounding the man, who was taken to a local hospital in stable condition. His name and condition had not been released this morning, Sohn said. He was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, according to Los Angeles Police Lt. Kathy Feldtz.

The injured SWAT officer was taken to the hospital and was in stable condition, Sohn said. His name also had not been released this morning.
