Investigators have said that Guardado was shot June 18 after two deputies on patrol saw him talking to someone in a car blocking a driveway in Gardena, which borders the city of Los Angeles. During the encounter, Guardado produced a handgun and fled, initiating a short foot chase, authorities said.

At some point, one deputy fired. Six bullet casings and a gun were recovered at the scene. Investigators said Guardado did not appear to fire at the deputies. His family said he was working as a security guard for an auto repair shop at the time he died.

The deputy who fired has been identified by local media as Miguel Vega and the other as Chris Hernandez. Both are assigned to the Compton station, authorities said Tuesday.

In a statement to Fox News, Vega's attorney, Adam Marangell, said his client is cooperating with investigators and will sit down for an interview Monday.
