An officer-involved shooting in Bel Air has left one man dead and investigators trying to piece together exactly what happened.

Police responded to the 1200 block of Stone Canyon Road around 3:30 this morning after a utility worker called to report an assault with a deadly weapon, according to City News Service. Officers then encountered a man with a gun and apparently shot him after a short altercation. There is no word yet on who shot first.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the house where the shooting happened belongs to an elderly woman whose son lives on the property in a guest house.
