The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department acknowledged today that its deputies mistakenly shot and killed a West Hollywood TV producer on Monday night who they thought was a stabbing suspect.
In fact, John Winkler, 30, had gone to a neighbor's apartment on Palm Avenue where a man was holding people hostage and tried to help.
Winkler was shot when he rushed out of the apartment with one other victim, who had been trapped inside the apartment with a third victim and the suspect, sheriff's officials said in a statement.
