Suspect fatally shot by sheriff's deputy

LYNWOOD Two deputies responded to a report of someone breaking into the insurance and bookkeeping business on Atlantic Avenue near Cortland Street about 11 p.m. Friday.

When the suspect emerged from a broken window, investigators say he reached into his waistband for what turned out to be a jagged piece of concrete.

Authorities say the deputy thought the man was arming himself and shot him in the torso.

The incident is under investigation.
