Los Angeles Police Department officers opened fire towards a suspect armed with a rifle in South Los Angeles Saturday.

The officer-involved shooting took place on the 400 block of 102nd Street and South Grand Avenue.

The LAPD announced Sunday that the person police shot and killed was a 19-year-old man identified as Luis Herrera. 

He was holding a non-lethal Airsoft rifle.

Officers originally responded to the scene at 1:30 p.m. after receiving a report of a domestic violence incident. When Herrera exited the house with the Airsoft rifle, that is when officers opened fire. 

No officers were injured in the shooting but Herrera was found unconscious and not breathing.
