Carson Officer-Involved Shooting

CARSON, Calif. (AP) — An armed man has been killed by police in a running gunbattle that began in Long Beach and ended in neighboring Carson.

City News Service reports the violence unfolded after Long Beach officers were flagged down at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Long Beach Deputy Chief Robert Luna says a woman reported that an armed man had made death threats against her and her family.

Luna says a Los Angeles police helicopter crew then spotted a man believed to be the suspect at a gas station in Carson, but arriving police units were met with gunfire.

After an exchange, the suspect ran off through a park and more shots were fired.

Luna says the man then ran into a neighborhood and tried to break into a residence but was shot.
