Coroner's officials on Thursday released the identity of a homeless man who was shot and killed by Los Angeles police officers Sunday on skid row after an altercation that included a gun grab, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Charly Leundeu Keunang, 43, had been living under a stolen identity belonging to a French man, said Ed Winter, spokesman of the Los Angeles County coroner’s office. Authorities believed he was a Cameroonian. But coroner’s investigators finally obtained his true identity from federal investigators and were able to track down his family, who are living on the East Coast, he said. They positively identified him.

Keunang had been using the name Charley Saturmin Robinet -- a name he used when he was convicted of a 2000 bank robbery in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Here we go again...You view on TV the same old hands up crap before all the facts are in. Now you see there was a gun grab and he was a convicted felon under an assumed name... the liberal media at its best.
