Tragedy in Long Beach

In an incident in Long Beach, deputies shot and killed a man who allegedly attempted to deliberately ram a police vehicle with his sports car. The incident occurred shortly before 10 p.m. on Tuesday after deputies responded to a report of a restraining order violation in Paramount, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. The suspect, involved in the restraining order violation, drove past the residence in question and was later located near the intersection of Artesia and Downey avenues in Long Beach, on the border with Bellflower.

The man, identified only as someone between 35 and 40 years old, died at the scene. A deputy was taken to the hospital, where he was treated for injuries sustained in the crash.
