A man has apparently died after a police shooting in a residential area of Arleta Monday afternoon.
Los Angeles Police Department officers responded to a family disturbance sometime before 5 p.m. near the intersection of Ottoman Street and Bartee Avneue, officials said.
When they arrived, the officers made contact with a person and shots were fired, Officer Mike Lopez told KTLA.
Police later said in a tweet that the man was armed with a handgun.
The person then fled on foot to nearby homes and into an alley, at which point an officer opened fire again. The person was struck and fell to the ground.
Eventually, a team of paramedics arrived but apparently determined the man beyond help. A gurney that had been wheeled near the individual was wheeled back to a nearby ambulance, and the man's body remained on the pavement.
About 20 LAPD vehicles, including unmarked ones, converged in the area after the shooting.
A handgun was recovered from the scene, police said. No officers were injured.
