Orange County sheriff’s deputies shot and killed a man early Thursday in Lake Forest after an hours-long standoff, authorities said.

The shooting occurred around 2:45 a.m., nearly three hours after deputies responded to the 24000 block of Calle Vecindad for reports of a truck that had struck multiple parked vehicles.

Deputies found a man locked in the truck with a knife, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release. The man allegedly refused to leave the vehicle for several hours as deputies tried to speak with him by calling his cellphone.
