Los Angeles police detectives Saturday were investigating the fatal shooting of a Venice man by an officer responding to a domestic violence call.

LAPD officials said the man was armed with an assault rifle when officers confronted him at his Venice Boulevard residence Friday night.

The officer who fired the shot had gone to the home with a partner around 8:30 p.m. in response to a call “to keep the peace,” Sgt. Barry Montgomery told reporters at the scene of the shooting.

“Upon their arrival, they were met by a female outside who stated the suspect was in the residence destroying property,” Montgomery said.
