A Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy has shot and killed a suspected drunken driver in Compton after the man allegedly bit his arm and tried to take his gun.
The motorist died at the scene shortly before 12:30 a.m. Thursday. His name hasn't been released.
Sheriff's officials say the man became combative after a deputy pulled over his car.
The deputy was treated at a hospital for a bite to his left arm.
It's the second deputy-involved shooting in Compton in two months. In May, deputies killed a man they say pointed a gun at them following a car chase.
