LAPDA mentally challenged, unarmed man was shot and killed by police officers in Los Angeles, while his family says he was lying down and complying with officers' commands.

Police say 25-year-old Ezell Ford was hailed by police Monday night for "an investigative stop" during which "a struggle ensued," prompting police to open fire. Ford was struck multiple times and transported to a nearby emergency room where he died. No officers were injured in the incident.

An unidentified cousin of the victim told KTLA he witnessed the end of the incident. He said Ford was mentally challenged, and it's highly unlikely the officers were not aware.

"They laid him out and for whatever reason, they shot him in the back, knowing mentally, he has complications. Every officer in this area, from the Newton Division, knows that -- that this child has mental problems.
