LASD: Deputies shoot, kills stabbing suspect in Bellflower

A man suspected of stabbing another man in Bellflower was fatally shot by Los Angeles County Deputies Thursday morning, per multiple reports.


Deputies who were already answering a previous call regarding a street race over on Artesia Boulevard and Downey Avenue just after midnight. During the corraling, the deputies were ‘flagged down’ by a man who said he sustained stab wounds from an unknown male armed with a garden claw.

  • The victim pointed to a 'Hispanic male in his 30s' and identified him as his attacker, police say.

  • When deputies approached the suspect, he ran away. Once deputies were able to catch up to the suspect, LA County Sheriffs says the suspect moved towards them, and the deputies opened fire, striking the suspect multiple times.

  • The suspect later died at the hospital, and the victim was treated at the scene by paramedics and lived.
