ALTADENA (CBS/AP) — A man fatally shot by a Los Angeles sheriff’s deputy was identified Sunday as a Pomona man.
The shooting, which occurred about 11:30 p.m. Friday, took place at New York Drive and Lake Avenue after deputies pulled over a car with two men inside, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Mark Pope said.

Officials did not say why the car was pulled over or what happened to the other man.
