CA: Man with Concealed Carry Permit involved in Self Defense Shooting
Initial dispatch calls at 9:13 p.m. Wednesday said the shooting was possibly related to road rage, though DiMatteo said that wasn’t the case. Michael Lake, 27, stopped at a red light when the man approached his vehicle while riding a bicycle.
It’s unknown why the two began fighting but the altercation ended with Lake shooting and killing the man, police said.
When they arrived, officers found a green car at the intersection with a broken window.
Authorities covered a nearby body with a tarp and a coroner arrived at 10:20 p.m.
Lake has a concealed weapons permit and provided police with a statement before they allowed him to leave, officers said.
