LOS ANGELES California Highway Patrol officers fatally shot a man armed with a machete on the connector ramp from the eastbound Interstate 10 to the northbound Interstate 5 during Tuesday's evening rush hour.

Officials closed the ramp to investigate, causing a dual SigAlert and a massive traffic backup on the eastbound 10 that was expected to last well into the night.
