A day prior, LAPD police in Westlake shot and killed a man who they believed to be armed with a knife. This shooting comes a day after that incident.

According to the authorities, at 3:30 in the afternoon on Monday, Rampart Division patrol officers were summoned to an apartment building in the 200 block of South Witmer Street in response to a breach of a domestic violence restraining order.

The officers attempted to communicate with a man in his forties who was located inside a unit; however, the individual refused to come out or comply with the officers’ demands, according to the police. They carried on their conversation with him for another fifteen minutes or so before reporting that he “equipped himself with a huge knife.”

According to the police, when officers utilised “less lethal” measures such as pepper spray and a Taser, the man momentarily dropped the knife but instantly rearmed himself after the officers deployed these choices. The officer then fired one fatal shot at the individual, who was later pronounced dead at the scene of the incident.
