Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies shot a man in Compton early Sunday, authorities said.
The shooting occurred about 2:30 a.m. in the 500 block of South Long Beach Boulevard, a sheriff’s official said. A gun was recovered at the scene.
It is unclear what prompted the shooting, which remains under investigation.
One media report quoted a coroner’s official saying that the suspect had died. But another coroner's representative said they could not confirm that this was the same individual.
