Carlos Carrillo , 26

Carlos Carrillo, a 26-year-old Latino, was shot and killed by Los Angeles police Thursday, Dec. 6, in the 1800 block of Whitley Avenue in Hollywood, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Officers responded to a domestic-violence call at an apartment about 8:30 a.m., according to an LAPD news release.

When police arrived, they found a woman who was bleeding, police said. She told authorities that her ex-boyfriend, Carlos Carrillo, cut her with a knife and was in the apartment, they said.

Officers then approached Carrillo, who was holding a knife in his hand, police said. An officer asked Carrillo to drop the knife, but he refused, they said.

Carrillo then lunged at the officer, at which point the officer-involved shooting occurred, police said.

Paramedics were called, and Carrillo was pronounced dead at the scene.

The LAPD Force Investigation Division responded to the incident and will be handling the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Force Investigation Division at (213) 486-5230. Tipsters wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
