A knife-wielding man who tried to commandeer a pickup truck in front of two uniformed sheriff's deputies in South El Monte died early Monday morning after fighting with the officers, authorities said. Under department policy, the deputies, Ty Labbe and Peivi Tauiliili, will be placed on administrative leave while homicide detectives investigate the death of the unidentified man, believed to be in his 20s. The coroner has not determined the cause of death.
