April 08, 2014|By Joseph Serna

A 24-year-old man was shot and killed Monday night by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies who were responding to reports of an assault with a deadly weapon at a West Hollywood apartment complex, authorities said.

The shooting occurred about 9:30 p.m. as deputies approached the apartment building in the 900 block of Palm Avenue and two men came outside and “lunged” at the deputies, said Deputy Crystal Hernandez.

The deputies shot and killed the 24-year-old but did not hit the other man, according to a statement issued by the Sheriff's Department.

Moments later, the statement said, the deputies heard a scuffle going on inside an apartment, found one man choking another and broke up the conflict.

The two men fighting inside, as well as the surviving man outside, had all been stabbed, authorities said. All three men are expected to survive, they said.

A large knife was found at the scene, authorities said.

Detectives continue to investigate the incidents, officials said. The identity of the man shot by deputies was not immediately available.
