*Update* #LASD Homicide Dets Respond to Investigate Deputy-Involved Shooting, 900 blk Durfee Av, S El Monte

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau Detectives are continuing their investigation into a deputy-involved shooting which occurred Sunday morning, March 18, 2018, at 9:00 AM, in the unincorporated area of South El Monte. 
                                                   
Detectives have learned that Temple Station deputies responded to the 900 block of Durfee Avenue in response to a burglary in progress call.  Upon their arrival they contacted a male Hispanic 40 years old, to ascertain if he was involved in the burglary.  The suspect quickly walked away from the deputies and into the street.  Once in the street the suspect suddenly stopped and turned toward the deputies.  The suspect started to advance on the deputies while holding two large kitchen type knives, one in each hand.  That’s when a deputy involved shooting occurred. 
 
One deputy shot the suspect who collapsed in the street after being shot in the upper body.  Paramedics responded and pronounced the suspect dead at the scene. 
 
Two large 12” kitchen type knives belonging to the suspect were recovered at the scene next to the suspect’s body. 
 
The investigation is ongoing and there is no further information available. 
 
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. If you prefer to provide information anonymously, you may call "Crime Stoppers" by dialing (800) 222-TIPS (8477), use your smartphone by downloading the “P3 Tips” Mobile APP on Google play or the Apple App Store or by using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org
 
Whenever a Deputy Involved Shooting occurs involving Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies, and it results in the fatality of a person, multiple independent investigations immediately begin at the scene.  These include separate investigations by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner - Coroner, Sheriff's Homicide Bureau and Internal Affairs Bureau.  The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department immediately notifies the Office of the Inspector General who sends a representative to the incident scene and provides independent oversight throughout the investigative process.  Once concluded, a preliminary review is conducted by the Critical Incident Review Panel to determine whether any immediate actions are warranted.  Every aspect of the shooting is reviewed by the Sheriff's Executive Force Review Committee.  Input from Constitutional Policing Advisors is provided during the process.  The Office of the Los Angeles County District Attorney, Justice System Integrity Division (JSID), conducts a legal analysis to determine whether any criminal charges will be filed and if the shooting was legally justified.
