A man who had been armed with a machete was shot several times by an LAPD officer in the Lake Balboa area Wednesday.
The shooting happened after 7 a.m. in an alley at Sherman Way and Andasol Avenue, where a man with a machete was reported. It’s unclear what led up to the shooting.
The man was reported to be conscious and breathing immediately after the shooting, but will be taken to a hospital for multiple gun shot wounds. No officers were hurt in the shooting.
Video from Sky 2 over the scene showed a bicycle that had been discarded in an alley, and several feet away, a pile of clothes, at least two pairs of shoes, and a machete.
