Burglarly suspect shot and killed by police in Hollywood Hills

- Los Angeles police and the district attorney's office continued to investigate that shooting death of a suspected burglar, who was shot and killed by police who had surrounded a home burglary location Saturday afternoon in the Hollywood Hills, an officer said Sunday.

Officers were dispatched about 2:15 p.m. Saturday to a home in the 1800 block of Courtney Terrace on a report of burglary, said Los Angeles police officer Rosario Herrera of the Media Relations Section.

That street is in Nichols Canyon, a street just east of Laurel Canyon, and the shooting was about two blocks north of Hollywood Boulevard.

"The resident confronted the suspect and the suspect fled,'' Herrera said.

A perimeter was set up and around 3:30 p.m. Saturday the armed suspect emerged from the perimeter. The suspect encountered two officers, she said, and an officer-involved shooting occurred.

The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene, she said.
