PLAYA VISTA, Calif. ( KTLA) -- Police have shot and killed a man who was seen running naked outside an upscale beach condominium in Playa Vista.
The shooting was reported just after 3 a.m. Friday in the 5600 block of Crescent Way West after LAPD officers responded to a disturbing the peace call.
The man, who apparently took a taxi to the location, began stripping off his clothing and running around naked.
A witness said she heard screaming and commotion outside her window as police chased after the naked suspect. At some point, the suspect put on boxers.
"I heard them try to detain him and he would not comply; and there was a fight, a physical fight," she said.
She then heard two gunshots.
The suspect, in his 30s, was struck and rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, officials said.
The man's identity has not been released. Police say he was a resident of the condominium complex.
There's no word on what prompted officers to open fire.
The shooting is under investigation.
Two officers were injured during the struggle. Their conditions were not immediately known.
