Traffic stop on 60 Freeway in Monterey Park ends in deadly police shooting



One person was killed when a traffic stop on the 60 Freeway ended with officers opening fire in Monterey Park Monday night.



The events began about 8:20 p.m. when two officers pulled over a vehicle traveling eastbound on the freeway near Paramount Boulevard, California Highway Patrol Officer Robert Manzano said.

The man, whose identity was not released, was pronounced dead on State Route 60 near Los Angeles. Authorities found a sword nearby but it’s not clear if he used it or threatened the CHP officers with it.

Officers tried to pull over the vehicle, but the driver did not yield when they turned on their patrol car’s lights and sirens, Officer Christian Baldonado said. The initial reason for the traffic stop has not been disclosed.

The news release states that the driver resisted, but Baldonado did not know if he resisted physically or verbally. The release said the driver “failed to comply with commands” before at least one officer fired multiple times.

The officers were not hurt in the shooting.
