Sheriff’s deputies shot and killed a man after he allegedly stabbed a man then attacked responding deputies in the Vermont Knolls area of South Los Angeles, officials said Sunday.

Authorities began investigating the deputy-involved shooting in the 1100 block of 75th Street (map) around 7 p.m. Saturday, according to a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department news release.

The shooting occurred after sheriff’s deputies with the Century Station responded to reports of an attempted assault with a deadly weapon.

After the deputies administered “less-lethal force,” the man continued to attack and deputies shot and killed him, the news release stated.

No sheriff’s deputies were injured during the incident.

The condition of the stabbing victim was unknown.
