San Diego County sheriff’s deputies shot and killed a man they said pulled a handgun during a Friday confrontation, authorities said.
A call about a suspicious person sent deputies to a neighborhood in Encinitas at about 8 a.m. and when they arrived, they encountered a man who pulled a gun, the Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.
Two deputies opened fire, hitting the man at least once. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
No deputies were hurt.
