**VERTICAL VIDEO** Man gets out of car at 1:51 and is fired upon when fleeing his vehicle.
Long Beach police were pursuing a man fleeing from a Target Store security guard for “a crime allegedly committed at the store,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said late Sunday.
When deputies arrived to help security officers locked in a struggle with the man, he pulled out a large pair of scissors, according to a department statement.The man then fled to his vehicle and led the police on a chase which ended at the 1800 block of East Ocean Boulevard.
The department claimed that he was refusing commands to exit his vehicle and allegedly got out of his car with a “large wooden stick.”When the man began to flea police they initially fired a stun bag at him, which showed to have no effect.
At this point the Long Beach Police claim to have “encountered the man” and shot him. However the video shows no such encounter. The man is completely isolated and it appears that he was shot in cold blood, in the back.
The following video was published after these claims by the LBP have been made.

Long Beach cops say they're the ones who opened fire from the side as the man got to the bottom of the stairs. They started shooting after mistaking bean bag rounds, shot from sheriff's officers behind the man, as hostile gunfire, a spokeswoman for the Long Beach department told us.
"The officers basically believed the suspect had been involved in a shootout with deputies prior to him running down the steps," she said.
