Deputies in Compton fatally shoot unarmed black man

COMPTON – August 26, 2016 – Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies shot and killed a man Thursday as they searched for a suspect they say fired at them after a pursuit in Compton.

Investigators are still trying to determine if the man who was shot was involved in the original incident or had been armed at all. Another man was taken into custody without injury.

The incident started around 2:03 a.m., when deputies attempted to stop a car for a traffic violation near 138th Street and Alameda Avenue.

The driver in the vehicle refused to pull over and fled from deputies, prompting a chase. During the pursuit, deputies discovered that the car had been stolen in an armed carjacking earlier in the morning.

The chase ended when the car crashed near Slater and Compton avenues. The suspect then got out of the car and began firing shots at the deputies, authorities said. The deputies fired back and the suspect ran into an adjacent neighborhood.

Authorities said no deputies were hit, and it was unclear if the suspect was shot at the time.
