The family and friends of a Los Angeles man shot to death by police last weekend said Friday that officers fired on the 26-year-old while he was kneeling on the ground with his hands on his head. Freddy Santana was urinating in bushes by a house in his Exposition Park neighborhood when officers ordered him at gunpoint to step into a clearing and drop to the ground, said Isaac Vega. Vega said he watched the confrontation from inside his van parked across the street.

Two Los Angeles police officers shot and killed a man who had allegedly threatened a neighbor and then appeared to draw a gun on officers investigating the incident, authorities said Sunday. Freddie Santana, 26, was pronounced dead near his West 21st Street residence, Los Angeles police spokesman Mike Schwehr said. The gun turned out to be fake. Police were called to the area just southwest of downtown Los Angeles about 10 p.m. Saturday, Schwehr said.
