A Sigalert was issued at about 9:30 a.m. for the westbound 105 transition road to the 710 Freeway in Paramount for an unknown duration due to the officer-involved shooting.

A man in a black shirt and gray pants appeared agitated and was holding a gun as he talked to CHP officers. He stood in freeway lanes near a van with its hood up and its passenger door ajar.

Sky 2 was over the scene when the man was seen raising his weapon at the officers, who returned fire. The man was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, which is assisting in the investigation.

The LAPD later confirmed that the man killed by CHP officers Tuesday was Jesse Medrano, 35, who they had identified as a suspect in a murder in the 400 block of East 92nd Street.

The CHP said he was wanted on suspicion of shooting three of his own relatives Sunday in Green Meadows.

“I saw when my dad fell to the ground,” said Mariana Grajeva, a family member.

His cousin said she was there Sunday when Medrano allegedly shot and killed his own father, Ruben Marrufo, 61, and then shot her parents, Ricardo Grajeva, and his wife Gloria Medrano.

“I went ahead and went inside because since I am pregnant,” said Mariana. “I was like I have to think about my baby, and this man has a gun and I don’t want him to shoot me.”

She says it appeared her cousin, who she says recently got out of jail, was on drugs — something echoed by a neighbor of the suspect’s mom and sister…

Medrano had been on the run until the CHP responded Tuesday morning to a disabled vehicle on the 105 West, 710 North interchange.

An officer was also injured in the exchange of gunfire.
