A sheriff's deputy fatally wounded a suspected car thief in Artesia early Sunday after the man refused to drop a screwdriver and stepped toward the deputy, sheriff's officials said. The encounter began when deputies responded to a call that a man was looking into cars near Ibex Avenue and 175th Street. A deputy who searched the area saw a man matching the description of the suspect sitting in the cab of a pickup truck parked in a driveway and ordered him out of the vehicle, a sheriff's spokeswoman said.

The woman, who authorities said may have been dead for a week, was apparently killed by a powerful blow to the head, said Lt.

Thirty-five friends and relatives of a black Hawthorne man who was slain by a sheriff's deputy after being mistaken for a Latino robbery suspect demonstrated outside the Lennox sheriff's station on Saturday, saying the sheriff's own investigations have failed to deliver justice. The emotional, homemade protest--including the victim's mother, sister and his 11-year-old and 10-year-old daughters--featured allegations of racism and demands that a murder charge be filed. "Daddy, I'm Fighting for You," read 10-year-old Temika Donel's sign.
