A 24-year-old man was killed in a deputy-involved shooting in West Hollywood Monday. An investigation is underway.

Authorities responded to an assault with a deadly weapon call in the 900 block of Palm Avenue at 9:29 p.m. When deputies arrived at the apartment, they were confronted by two men who were leaving the residence.

"The men aggressed the deputies," police said in a press release, and a deputy-involved shooting occurred.

Inside the apartment, deputies found two other men fighting, and one of the men was choking the other. Deputies were able to stop the fight and detain the men.

All four men were taken to a local hospital, where one of the men was declared dead from a gunshot wound. His name has not been released.

The three other men were treated for stab wounds and are in stable condition.

Authorities say a knife was recovered at the scene.

No deputies were injured in the incident. The shooting remains under investigation.
