Authorities have identified the man who died in a shooting with police officers early Tuesday after he crashed a stolen truck in Wilmington and tried to flee, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The L.A. County medical examiner-coroner’s office identified the man as 41-year-old Jason Sanderson and ruled his death a homicide. He died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds, officials said.

At about 3:30 a.m., police officers were pursuing a stolen truck near Quay Avenue and E Street, according to LAPD social media posts. A man was driving the vehicle, and after the crash, he got out of the truck and ran away, the LAPD said.

Officers chased the man on foot and shot him, police said. The man was taken into custody. Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.

The man’s handguns were at the scene and will be booked as evidence, police said. No bystanders or officers were wounded during the shooting. The incident is under investigation.

The area around Quay Avenue from Anaheim to D streets will remain closed for several hours, according to an LAPD spokesperson.
