A man was shot and killed by deputies Sunday night in the side yard of a Hawaiian Gardens residence, officials said.

The shooting happened at 9:40 p.m. near a home in the 12200 block of 216th Street, after a report of a possible prowler knocking on the door of the house, according to the LA County Sheriff’s Department.

The man was identified as Johnny Ray Anderson, a husband who had seven children and three grandchildren, according to his wife, Kathleen Anderson.

Deputies did not immediately give details on what led up to the shooting, but Kathleen Anderson said that her husband was fixing a bicycle when authorities arrived.

She said her husband jumped over a fence into the yard of the home on 216th Street, where deputies found him.

No deputies were hit by gunfire, officials said. The man, who was shot in the upper body, died at the scene.

 Kathleen Anderson added that she did not know he had been killed until deputies told her.

Additional details were not immediately available.
