Los Angeles police officers shot a man to death after the rear window of their police cruiser shattered while the officers were at a stoplight in Van Nuys, authorities said Sunday.

The two officers were in their patrol car at the intersection of Sepulveda and Victory boulevards about 11:30 p.m. Saturday when they “suddenly hear and saw their rear window shatter,” said LAPD Officer Mike Lopez.

Both officers got out of their car and fired an unknown number of shots at a man, described as in his 30s, who was later pronounced dead at the scene.

The man’s identity was not released pending notification of his family, and it’s unclear if he was carrying a weapon.
