A man suspected of stealing a car in Glendale was shot and killed by police Thursday following a crash in adjacent Atwater Village.

Glendale Police Department officers attempted to stop the man at the intersection of Los Feliz Boulevard and San Fernando Road about 4:45 p.m., according to a department statement.

“The male driver exited the vehicle armed, and an officer involved shooting occurred,” according to the GPD. “A firearm was recovered from the suspect.”

The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. His name was withheld pending notification of his next of kin.
