At least one officer opened fire Friday on a suspect, fatally wounding him, during a scuffle that broke out following a brief foot chase in Oak Park, authorities reported.
The officer-involved shooting at Krenning and 54th streets took place about 3:45 p.m., according to San Diego police.
The suspect died at the scene, Officer Tony Martinez said. No other injuries were reported.
It was not immediately clear why police were trying to apprehend the man, whose name was unavailable in the late afternoon.
Officers closed traffic lanes around the site of the shooting to allow investigators to gather evidence.
