Skid Row suspect killed in officer-involved shootingBy Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Los Angeles police officers trying to subdue a robbery suspect in the city's skid row section shot and killed the man as he tried to grab an officer's gun during a scuffle that was captured on video, police said on Monday. The dead man was reported by the Los Angeles Times to have been a homeless man known by his street name, Africa, who according to witnesses at the scene had been living in a tent for a few months after a period in a mental health facility. Local civil rights activists called on the Los Angeles Police Commission to hold a special hearing on the exercise of force by police on skid row, a 50-block area of the city that ranks as one of the largest concentrations of homeless people in United States. The Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement that the man in question was a suspect in a robbery who began fighting with officers as they tried to take into custody.
