Los Angeles police shot and killed a Santa Maria man on Tuesday who was suspected of shooting his ex-wife and abducting their 9-year-old son.
About 6:45 p.m., police confronted Konstantin Morozov, 48, as he was leaving a friend’s home in Encino with his son, according to police. Police then shot and killed Konstantin Morozov, who was armed with a handgun.
Shortly before 9 p.m. on Monday, Konstantin Morozov shot and killed his ex-wife, Natalia Morozova. Police then issued an Amber Alert for Daniel Morozov, a third grader.
