LOS ANGELES, Ca. — A Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy shot and killed a man early Saturday after he pointed and fired a gun at the deputy after a traffic stop, authorities said.

According to sheriff's officials, the shooting occurred at Muriel Avenue and Pixley Street about 1:15 a.m. after the 21-year-old, who has not been identified, made an illegal U-turn in a pickup truck.

The deputy pulled the truck over, officials said, but as he walked up to the vehicle, it sped off. A short time later, the deputy saw the pickup stopped at a corner.
