A man who officers thought was planning to break into a vehicle was fatally shot by police after a brief foot chase in Historic South-Central on Monday afternoon, according to LAPD.

The officers briefly chased the man on foot to the back of a nearby home on Maple Avenue just south of East 27th Street.

“When they got to the rear of that residence, there was an officer-involved shooting,” Aguilar said. “This was one officer who fired at the suspect.”
