LOS ANGELES – The coroner’s office Saturday released the name of a man who was shot to death by a homeowner he lunged at with a knife in the front yard of that man’s Lincoln Heights house.
Jonathan Hue, 27, was a West Covina resident.
He was pronounced dead at the scene, said Officer Norma Eisenman of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.
Hue approached the man about 9:40 p.m. Friday in the 500 block of East Avenue 28, Eisenman said.
The homeowner shot the suspect, then called police, she said. He was not arrested.
I like feel-good stories like these. I sleep better at night.
