Man Killed by Security Guard After Argument
A security guard fatally shot a man outside a bar early Saturday in what police say appeared to be self-defense.
The man argued with the guard after being denied reentry into the bar in the 15000 block of Roscoe Boulevard, Los Angeles police said.
The man walked away and returned with a big stick, swinging it at the guard while threatening him with physical harm.
During the confrontation, the guard fired once at the man, hitting him in the upper body, police said. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity has not been released.
The 30-year-old guard was questioned by police and released, authorities said.
