Lawyers Recommend $8 Million Settlement in Shooting of Man by Deputy

Lawyers representing Los Angeles County have recommended an $8 million settlement of a lawsuit filed by the parents of an 18-year-old man who was fatally shot by a sheriff’s deputy near Gardena in 2020.

Andres Guardado was shot around 6 p.m. June 18, 2020, near the 400 block of West Redondo Beach Boulevard. Sheriff’s officials said two patrol deputies were at the scene when Guardado pulled out a handgun, then began running. Deputies chased him and caught up with him in an alley, where one deputy opened fire, deputies said.

Guardado was pronounced dead at the scene. Sheriff’s officials said a weapon was discovered at the scene –an unregistered .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol with a polymer frame and no serial number, a Smith & Wesson slide and a prohibited 15-round Glock magazine fully loaded.
