A man was shot and killed on Sunday by officers responding to reports of a man with a gun, the Los Angeles police said.
Officer Liliana Preciado said a firearm was recovered at the scene of the fatal shooting Sunday afternoon in a residential area of South LA.
Preciado said the shooting happened when officers approached two Hispanic men, one of whom matched the description in the initial call of a suspect with a gun.
The suspect was pronounced dead at a hospital. He was not identified.
The second man was questioned and released.
Preciado did not have additional details.
The shooting occurred a few miles from where a crowd gathered to protest the deadly police shooting Saturday of an 18-year-old black man.
