Homeowner fatally shoots knife-wielding suspect in Lincoln Heights

A homeowner shot and killed a man who lunged at him with a knife while he was in the front yard of his Lincoln Heights home, police said Saturday.

The suspect, a man approximately 30 years old, was pronounced dead at the scene, said Officer Norma Eisenman of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Division.

The suspect approached the man at about 9:40 p.m. Friday in the 500 block of East Avenue 28, Eisenman said.

The homeowner shot the suspect and then called police, she said. He was not arrested.
