Armed suspect fatally shot by Montebello cops

MONTEBELLO, Calif. Daniel Garcia, 32, was shot to death Sunday in the 500 block of Emmett Williams Way. Investigators say Garcia used a knife to rob someone at a cash machine near Sixth Street and Whittier Boulevard at around 6:30 p.m.

Police say an eyewitness to the robbery chased Garcia and called police.

When officers responded, they found the suspect hiding in a trash bin. The officers told the man to lie on the ground, and when he didn't respond, they used a Taser on him.

Police say the suspect then advanced with a knife, and officers responded by opening fire.

The /*L.A. County Sheriff's Department*/, which routinely investigates officer-involved shootings in the county's smaller municipal police departments, is investigating the incident.
