Los Angeles police say a security guard at a Scientology building shot and killed a man wielding a sword. Officer April Harding says the man approached the guard in the parking lot of the Scientology Celebrity Centre International around noon Sunday.

Harding says the guard "felt threatened for his life" and fired at the man. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Homicide detectives have cordoned off the building in Hollywood to investigate.

Scientology spokespeople didn't immediately return messages Sunday.
