Two Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies shot and wounded a man in the 1700 block of Burnside Avenue in the Mid-City area Wednesday afternoon, according to a news release. Deputies responded to a Burnside Avenue address and saw a man who closely matched the description of a suspected felon. Upon contact with deputies, the man reached into his waistband and removed several objects, including narcotics and "a black object he held in his hand," the release said.
