Alhambra officers shoot, kill man inside police station
A man shot by Alhambra police inside the police headquarters lobby on Friday morning has died, a coroner’s spokesman said.
One or more Alhambra police officers fired their guns about 7:30 a.m. inside the police station on Commonwealth Avenue, hitting a suspect, said Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker.
Officials said they were still gathering information and could not yet say exactly what happened inside the station.
Los Angeles County coroner’s spokesman Ed Winter said the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Sources familiar with the incident said preliminary information suggests that the man was armed with a weapon and made threats seconds before the shooting.
The police department lobby has been closed and some streets in the area have been shut down.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will investigate the officer-involved shooting.
