Spear-Wielding Man Shot, Killed by Sheriff’s Deputies in Canyon Country (Los Angeles)
Obviously this person was seriously disturbed but I don’t see that the cops had any choice.
CANYON COUNTRY (cbsla.com) — Sheriff’s deputies shot and killed a man who charged at innocent people with a spear Thursday night in Canyon Country.
The shooting happened around 8:20 p.m. at Soledad Canyon Road and Shangri-La Drive.
“Patrol deputies from Santa Clarita Station were flagged down by citizens who reported a man was in the area, running in and out of traffic, holding a spear, and waving it at passersby on the road,” Dep. Crystal Hernandez said.
Deputies located the suspect standing on a center median, holding a metal spear and behaving strangely.
Witness Priscilla Garcia said the suspect appeared to be taunting deputies and tried to break her windshield.
