An Irvine man was shot and killed by the Seal Beach Police Department Monday night.
Officers responded to the 100 block of Old Ranch Road at 9:36 p.m. to investigate a “suspicious person in front of a residence,” police spokesperson Julia Clasby said Tuesday morning.
The “suspicious person” was armed with a gun, and at least one officer opened fire, striking the 47-year-old an unknown number of times, police said.
Neighbors told KTLA they heard a barrage of gunfire.
He was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
A black handgun was recovered at the scene, police said.
Clasby said police believe there “is some type of connection” between the man and the person who called police, a resident of the home “where he was trying to gain access.”
“This doesn’t appear to be a random incident, and at this point, there is no threat to public safety,” she added.
