Man Killed in Lancaster Deputy Shooting

Jason Kandel (Los Angeles Times) | January 22, 2012

LA County Sheriff’s deputies shot and killed a man on Saturday night in Lancaster who they later said was a wanted felon gang member who had reached for his waistband, officials said.

Christian Cobian, 26, was celebrating a baptism with his family when he took his bicycle to buy cigarettes, the victim’s aunt said.

“He wasn’t doing anything wrong, and he didn’t deserve to die this way,” she said.

The incident began just before 11 p.m. Saturday at 10th Street West and West Avenue J-4, said sheriff’s Lt. Kim Unland.

It started when two deputies in a patrol car tried to stop a man who was riding a bicycle without a headlight in a dimly lit area, officials said. Deputies said the man ignored their commands to stop before he got off the bike and ran behind a nearby business.
