The incident began at 8:12 p.m. Monday when officers responded to a report of a shooting at the intersection of West 65th Street and South Broadway (map), said Lt. Ellis Imaizumi of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Eight minutes later, at 8:20 p.m., the officers stopped a man who was walking in the 200 block of 65th, authorities said.

“A struggle ensued” and police opened fire, according to a statement from the Police Department.

According to USA Today, “a man who identified himself as a cousin of Ezell Ford told KTLA that every police officer in the area knows that Ford had “mental problems” and “complications.”

Ford’s shooting death is currently under investigation.

This is the fourth police killing of an unarmed Black man in the last month that has made national headlines.

John Crawford, 22, was shot and killed on August 5 by Ohio police in Walmart after he was spotted holding a toy rifle. Ohio is an open carry state.

Most recently, 18-year-old Mike Brown was gunned down by Ferguson, Missouri police while walking with a friend in his neighborhood.
