ANAHEIM (CBSLA) — A man was shot and killed in a confrontation with Anaheim police officers late Thursday night.
Police officers were sent to check out a disturbance call at an apartment complex near East Street and Lincoln Avenue at about 10:20 p.m. Thursday. It’s not clear what followed, but Anaheim police Sgt. Shane Carringer said an officer-involved shooting happened at about 11 p.m.
“There was a call of someone in the area causing a disturbance,” Carringer said. “Whether it involved yelling or contacting any of the residents here, that’s still unclear.”
Carringer said at least one of the three officers opened fire on the man, who was taken to UCI Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Investigators from the Orange County District Attorney’s Office say a knife was recovered at the scene.
The parking lot underneath the apartments was being searched for clues. Police say there were no security cameras at the apartment complex, but the officers involved wore body cameras, which were recording at the time of the shooting.
Detectives are now looking for more information about the man and his connection to the apartment complex.
The streets surrounding the complex were shut down during the investigation.
