An armed suspect was shot and killed late this afternoon when at least two San Diego Police Department officers opened fire on him during a confrontation in a Southcrest-area neighborhood.

Officers were called about 5:30 p.m. to Humberto’s Taco Shop in the 1100 block of South 43rd Street on reports of man armed with a gun inside the restaurant, according to the SDPD.
