The investigation is continuing into a fatal officer-involved shooting on the Central Coast.
San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s deputies looking for a wanted suspect stopped a car on the southbound 101 near the Santa Barbara Road exit in Atascadero just after 12 this morning. Deputies say as they approached the man, he pulled out a gun. They opened fire, and retreated.
After backup officers arrived and the freeway was closed, officers again approached the car and discovered the man was dead.
