Man shot and killed at Scientology building

A man wielding a sword died after being shot by a security guard at the Scientology building in Hollywood, police said in an Associated Press article.

Around noon, the unidentified man approached the guard in the parking lot of the Scientology Celebrity Centre, said Officer April Harding, a police spokesperson.

The guard shot at the man because he "felt threatened for his life," Harding said.

Detectives questioned the guard to figure out the man's motives and if the guard decision was the best one, Harding said.

The unidentified man died at the hospital, according to the article.
