Man Shot and Killed by Deputies in Diamond Bar Neighborhood after Ignoring Orders to Surrender

A 30-year-old man was fatally shot by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies in a Diamond Bar neighborhood in June, as revealed by body-worn camera footage released on July 28. The video shows that the man, identified as Benjamin Chin, disregarded authorities’ orders to surrender and threatened a nearby motorist before he was shot.

The incident occurred around 11:30 a.m. on June 19, when multiple calls were made to authorities about a man wearing a ballistic vest and firing shots from a rifle while walking along the 2900 block of Crooked Creek Drive. The LASD reported that Chin had stabbed his mother in the back outside their home before proceeding down Crooked Creek Drive towards Diamond Bar Boulevard, with security camera footage capturing his movements.

According to witnesses, Chin fired approximately seven to eight shots before the arrival of deputies. His mother, who was covered in blood from the stab wound, followed him, pleading for him to drop the rifle. She approached the deputies, begging them not to harm her son.

Despite repeated orders to surrender, Chin continued to advance towards a Tesla on Diamond Bar Boulevard. Two deputies then fired at him, striking the suspect. Chin was later pronounced dead at the hospital. The rifle he carried was determined to be a ghost gun, an unserialized weapon that can be manufactured by users.

Investigation into the shooting is ongoing, with the case set to be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for an independent review to determine whether the use of force was warranted.
