Culver City police shot a man at their headquarters in downtown Culver City early this morning. It happened at 7:40 a.m., but authorities have released few details about the incident or the man's status.

ABC 7 is reporting that the man was transported to a hospital where he died:

Culver City Police have not confirmed the man died, however, it's worth nothing that homicide detectives from L.A. County Sheriff's Department sent out a release that they're investigating the case.

An eyewitness reported that the shooting happened in a secured police parking lot:

No officers were injured.

UPDATE 2:30 p.m.: Culver City police confirmed the man that they shot was killed by police. Lt. Dave Pullman told KNX radio that the man armed with a handgun followed a police car into a locked yard and raised his gun: "Three officers commanded him to drop it, at which time he raised the gun at officers."

Two officers responded by firing. Pullman said because he wasn't in the man's head, he wasn't sure if this was a case of "suicide by cop."
