A 25-year-old man was killed in a shootout with police who were responding to a domestic disturbance in Alhambra, authorities said Saturday.

A woman called police to report a disturbance at their residence between herself, her husband and their adult son and that her son was possibly armed with a gun, said Sheriff’s Deputy Lisa Jansen.

Two responding Alhambra Police officers heard multiple gunshots as they got close to the residence, she said.

When the officers positioned themselves across the street from the residence, the suspect shot several rounds at them and they fired back.

The gunman was struck by the officer gunfire and was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries, Jansen said.

Neither of the officers was injured in the exchange of gunfire, she added.

Both Alhambra officers were wearing body cameras and a review of the video footage will take place as part of the investigation, she said.

The officer-involved shooting, which was being investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, occurred at 7:25 p.m. Friday in the 2900 block of West Main Street, said Jansen.
