Man Shot, Killed At Scientology Building In LA

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police say a security guard at a
Scientology building has shot and killed a sword-wielding man.

Officer April Harding said the man approached the guard in the parking lot of the Scientology Celebrity Centre International around noon Sunday. Harding said the guard "felt threatened for his life" and fired at the unidentified man. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Homicide detectives have cordoned off the building in Hollywood to investigate.

A Scientology spokesperson could not be immediately reached for comment.
