The man who was found dead after a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department SWAT team tear gas shot tear gas into a Lancaster home, and a fire broke out, has been identified as a 35-year-old convicted felon.
A Reseda man was charged Tuesday with assaulting a Woodland Hills veterans lodge’s commander-in-chief after holing up in the facility for over seven hours with a shotgun.
Authorities say a man was taken into custody after allegedly threatening his family and police with a butcher knife in South Los Angeles.
A seven-hour standoff involving a man armed with a machete ended early Wednesday morning with the suspect surrendering to police.
Officials are set to release a report into how the Los Angeles sheriff’s department investigated the death of a journalist who was killed when he was struck by a tear gas missile 41 years ago.
