Authorities Wednesday identified a man who was shot and killed when he allegedly pulled out a firearm when stopped by deputies from the sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station in an unincorporated Los Angeles County area near Whittier.
The shooting occurred just before 5 p.m. Sunday near Obregon Street and Eduardo Avenue, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Tracy Koerner.
Isaiah Guevara, 18, of Whittier died at scene, the Los Angles County coroner’s office reported.
Deputies were on patrol when they saw Guevara walking in the middle of the street, Koerner said.
“The deputies pulled alongside the suspect and began speaking to him. The driver stopped the vehicle and continued the conversation,” Koerner said.
“While speaking with him, the suspect produced a firearm from his person and a deputy-involved shooting occurred,” Koerner said. “The deputies were still seated in the vehicle at the time of the shooting.”
Deputies and paramedics performed CPR on Koerner, but he was pronounced dead at the scene, Koerner said. A firearm was recovered. The investigation was continuing.
