LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say a vandalism suspect has been shot to death by officers in the Van Nuys area.

Sgt. Al Gonzalez says police responded early Friday to reports of vandalism and of a disturbance on Hayvenhurst Avenue.

Officers encountered the suspect and tried to take the suspect into custody.

Gonzalez says they were unable to detain him and an officer-involved shooting occurred.

The suspect was described as a man in his early 20s.

City News Service says according to reports from the scene, one or more suspects may have been vandalizing vehicles with rocks.
