CULVER CITY (CNS) - A man confronted officers with a handgun at the Culver City police station today and was shot and killed, homicide detectives confirmed.

The shooting occurred at 7:40 a.m. at the Culver City Police Department, 4040 Duquesne Ave. Sheriff's deputies were called in by the Culver City Police Department to investigate the officer-involved shooting under a longstanding policy, they said.

Police say the man had followed a police car as it was driven into the locked yard, and the suspect was armed with a handgun.

``Three officers commanded him to drop it, at which time he raised the gun at officers,'' Lt. Dave Pullman said. Two Culver City officers fired.

 No officers were wounded.
