A man shot and killed by Los Angeles police officers in Studio City last week has been identified as 44-year-old Seth Raines, coroner officials said Tuesday.

Witnesses reported the Los Angeles resident shooting in the air and ground on Friday at a busy shopping area at Ventura and Laurel Canyon boulevards. Officers responded at about 3:20 p.m. and an officer-involved shooting occurred shortly after.

Witness video showed the man raising his gun and police opening fire. About three shots could be heard.

No other injuries were reported. A bomb squad later responded to the scene to deal with suspicious packages next to Raines.
