Off-Duty Deputy Marshal Involved in Shooting

Los Angeles: On Wednesday, March 5, 2008, just before midnight, an off-duty United States Deputy Marshal became involved in a domestic dispute with his wife in the 7300 block of Melrose Avenue.

The argument continued into the alley to the rear of a closed business, near Poinsettia Avenue. A 26-year-old man intervened and brandished a handgun at the Deputy Marshal. An argument between the two men escalated with the 26-year old man punching the Deputy Marshal in the head multiple times, while continuing to threaten with the gun.

The Deputy Marshal identified himself as a law enforcement officer, but the man continued to point his gun at the Deputy Marshal. The Deputy Marshal, in fear for his life, drew his sidearm and fired at the man.

The man was pronounced dead at the location. His name is being withheld pending notification to his family.

The Deputy Marshal was arrested for Domestic Battery and was booked at Hollywood Jail. The United States Marshal’s Service is withholding his name due to the administrative investigation.

Robbery-Homicide Detectives are investigating the incident.

For additional information, please call Media Relations Section at 213-485-3586.
