Police fatally shoot man wanted in California machete attack after he pulls knife at Sagebrush Cantina

Officers fatally shot a knife-wielding man on the patio of a popular Southern California restaurant after pursuing him from the scene of a nearby machete attack, police said.

None of the many customers inside the Sagebrush Cantina were hurt in the Wednesday night incident and the victim of the machete attack was not seriously injured, the Los Angeles Police Department said in social media posts.

Officers first responded to a report of an assault by someone armed with a machete outside a McDonald’s in the Woodland Hills area. The victim had been able to disarm the machete-wielding assailant but the attacker armed himself with a knife, police said.

Sagebrush Cantina has been a dining and entertainment destination in the Old Town Calabasas area of the western San Fernando Valley since 1974.
