Sheriff’s homicide investigators are en route to West Covina to investigate an officer involved shooting at the intersection of Azusa Avenue and Merced Street, officials said. Few details are available. The shooting appears to have been at the end of some sort of pursuit.
Craig Harvey, chief of operations for the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner says investigators are en route to the scene of the shooting. Harvey reports that one man is dead.
“The unidentified male apparently reached for an officer’s weapon,” Harvey told Brian Day. “Shots were fired.”
Harvey said an altercation between a West Covina police officer and the suspect took place prior to the shooting.
