Police shot and killed a man while responding to reports of a disturbance in Anaheim late Thursday night, the Anaheim Police Department said.

Officers who responded to the area of Lincoln Avenue and East Street at about 10:20 p.m. encountered the man in a parking garage beneath a two-story building where shots were fired at about 11 p.m.

"An officer-involved shooting occurred," Anaheim police Sgt. Shane Carringer said. "One adult male suspect was struck by gunfire."

Paramedics rushed the man to UCI medical center, where he was pronounced dead, according to police. He was identified as Taveonte Art Emmanuel, 34, of Anaheim.

Authorities did not provide information on what led up to the shooting or how many officers fired at the man.

The sergeant said all three officers who responded were wearing body cameras that were activated and likely captured the shooting.

No officers were injured during the incident.

Lincoln Avenue and East Street were closed for hours early Friday morning while officers worked.

The incident is being investigated by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office and no further details were available.

The shooting was reported just hours after another man was killed by police in Orange County.

The knife-wielding man experiencing mental distress was shot by police around 11:30 a.m. in Orange after he allegedly came towards officers with the knife and did not comply with their commands.
