TORRANCE, Calif. — Two burglary suspects killed by officers are said to have been armed with 'sharp yard tools.'
The two home burglary suspects trapped in a backyard shed who were shot to death by Torrance police last weekend were not carrying guns but touched off the fatal showdown by moving "aggressively" toward officers with "sharp yard tools," the city's Police Department said Wednesday.
