Off-duty officer killed in Bellflower robbery

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that an off-duty Gardena police officer was shot and killed a man with a knife who was trying to rob a diner in Bellflower last week.

According to the Los Angeles County sheriff’s office, a five-year vetern of the Gardena police department was eating at a Norm’s Restaurant when the robber came in. Apparently the officer tried to stop the robbery only to be charged at by the man. Fearing for his life, he shot and killed the man, who died at the scene.
