ALTADENA - A woman was hospitalized after being stabbed, her possible assailant killed by a deputy at an Altadena intersection Sunday.
The incident occurred around 4:08 p.m. January 10 at the intersection of Figueroa Drive and Lincoln Avenue. A deputy patrolling in a vehicle was flagged down by a woman who was apparently the victim of a stabbing. An unknown male then approached the deputy and a shooting occurred, according to Deputy Arteaga of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Information Bureau.
It is unclear to Arteaga why use of force was necessary against the man.
The woman was taken to a trauma center, according to Dispatch Supervisor of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene, Arteaga told SGV CityWatch. The woman’s condition was not readily available at the time of the story was posted.
