A man was killed in an officer-involved shooting in Boyle Heights early Saturday, Los Angeles Police officials said.
The incident was reported about 12 a.m. at the intersection of East 1st and Soto streets at a Gold Line Metro station.
Officers were patrolling the area when they say they heard gunshots, Lt. Chris Ramirez said.
The officers then approached a man walking on the sidewalk and when they attempted to stop him and an officer-involved shooting occurred.
The man was struck by gunfire and he eventually pronounced dead at the scene.
A gun was recovered at the scene and the area is cordoned off during the investigation, Ramirez said.
No officers were injured during the incident.
Video from the scene showed a man and a woman comforting each other after the shooting.
The station is closed and trains are bypassing the stop where the shooting occurred.
