A Santa Monica officer fatally shot a man who brandished a black metal cylinder when police came to a Westside apartment early Friday to serve a warrant as part of a narcotics investigation, police said. The object turned out to be a fire starter typically used for lighting barbecues, but the officer believed it to be a weapon, Santa Monica Police Sgt. Gary F. Gallinot said. Fearing for his life, Officer Gary Barbaro fired one shot, Gallinot said. It struck the 53-year-old man in the chest.

A South Los Angeles man was charged Tuesday in connection with a series of Westside home invasion robberies targeting elderly women. Jeffrey Wayne Langford, 53, dubbed by police "the Silverware Bandit," was charged with three robberies since June, two in Los Angeles and one in Santa Monica. Police are investigating his involvement in at least a dozen others. "He was just a window away from striking again," said Capt. Bruce Cremins of the Los Angeles Police Department. "He was casing people, he was very sophisticated, he was very experienced."
