Oceanside officer fatally shoots man at harbor

An Oceanside police officer shot and killed a man in his mid-20s from San Pedro who drew a gun on him Monday, officials said.

The officer had been called to the Oceanside Harbor to investigate a report of a man sleeping or passed out on a bench. When the officer, a 15-year veteran, approached the man, he noticed a gun in the man's waistband, officials said.

When the man ignored commands to show his hands and instead allegedly pulled out a gun, the officer opened fire. The man was taken by helicopter to Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, where he was pronounced dead.

No names were released. A 9-millimeter gun was recovered.
