VIDEO: CA Police Shoot Knife-Wielding Man Demanding Coffee, Donuts

An armed suspect demanding coffee and donuts at an El Monte, CA, business was shot and wounded by police after raising his knife at officers, reports KABC.

The officer-involved shooting happened just before 1 a.m. Investigators at the scene said it started when the unidentified suspect tapped at the 24-hour Yum Yum Donuts window with a knife, demanding coffee and pastries. The suspect eventually walked off.

When El Monte police officers arrived and attempted to make contact with the suspect, the suspect threw coffee at them. After two TASER deployments failed, the suspect raised his knife to throw it at the officers, according to Lt. Joe Mendoza of the LASD. Officers opened fire, striking the suspect once in the torso. He is hospitalized and listed in stable condition.
