Felipe Valdovinos, a 27-year-old Latino, died Sunday, Sept. 20, after he was shot by Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputies at Alondra Boulevard and the onramp to the southbound 710 Freeway in Compton, officials said.

Deputies saw Valdovinos and an unidentified man walking out of a "darkened alley and attempted to make contact with them," according to a statement released by the Sheriff's Department.

Valdovinos reportedly ran from the deputies, then turned around and began to shoot at them, according to the statement. One deputy was shot in the leg.
