Police initially said the suspect had been taken into custody and transported to a local hospital after being shot by police in the 3500 block of Strang Avenue in Rosemead Tuesday night. Eyewitness News has now learned the suspect was killed and a coroner was called to the scene.
Neighboring homes were evacuated and SWAT and crisis negotiation teams were called to the scene after the suspect, identified by police as Tien Hua, barricaded himself when police arrived to try to serve arrest and search warrants.
Hua allegedly shot and killed Henry Estrada near Camrose Drive and Sycamore Avenue in the Hollywood Hills at about 8:30 p.m. Sunday. The extent of the relationship, if any, between Hua and Estrada remains unclear.
The suspect allegedly chased Estrada up a hill and shot him multiple times. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
