Los Angeles police fatally shot a man on Sunday in an incident that was caught on video and circulated widely online, with the department saying officers resorted to deadly force after the man had reached for one of their guns. The graphic footage, which appeared on Facebook, shows a violent altercation between a man and several officers in LA's "Skid Row," an area near downtown where many homeless people live. The video appears to show the man flailing at officers as they try to subdue him. The Los Angeles Police Department said three police officers -- a sergeant and two officers -- fired at the man after he reached for an officer's firearm during the altercation.
