Alarcon was chased and shot multiple times in the back. Witnesses claimed officers “planted pistol.”

L.A. County sheriff's deputies shot a man to death Sunday after he allegedly pulled a handgun and pointed it at them, authorities said. The man, identified by the Los Angeles County coroner's office as Salvador Zepeda Alarcon,18, was killed in the 800 block of Humphreys Avenue, near Folsom Street, after deputies responded to a report of shots fired, said Deputy Oscar Butao. The officers were traveling west on Folsom Street when they saw the man running east. They got out of their vehicle and ordered Alarcon to stop, Butao said, but he ignored them, drew a handgun from his waistband and pointed it at them.
