Police kill man they say held gun

Officers responding to a complaint of loud music shot and killed a man who allegedly pointed a handgun at them early Saturday morning.

Torrance officers arrived at an apartment complex in the 2200 block of Torrance Boulevard shortly after 1 a.m.

As they walked up the stairs leading to a second-story unit, they saw a man holding the gun, according to Officer Dave Crespin.

Moments later, officers shot the suspect, who died at the scene.

Crespin said police recovered a loaded handgun near the man, and found a fully loaded assault rifle with extra magazines, along with other weapons and ammunition, in the living room of his residence.

The man's name has not been released.

I hope it's not one of us, cause the picture painted is a negative one.

I have a feeling as it isn't one of us though. I would hope that members here would smart enough to not be handling a gun when dealing with law enforcement, that is just a dumb move.

Yes practice your rights, but practice them with common sense and within the law.
