The LAPD has released bodycam footage of an officer-involved shooting in Atwater Village, that fatally wounded an armed man who refused to comply with lawful orders.
59-year-old Jose Antonio De Santiago-Medina was mortally wounded after charging officers with a box cutter, despite repeated orders to drop his weapon.
Officers were called to the scene after they received reports of a suspect chasing people with the bladed tool. The officers only opened fire after the suspect ran and lunged at them while holding the weapon.
According to ABC7, the incident remains under investigation.
