The Alameda County Sheriff's Office is investigating a fatal deputy-involved shooting in San Lorenzo that happened on Monday night, a sheriff's spokesman said.
 
Deputies responded to a home at the corner of Paseo Grande and Via Toledo around 10 p.m., Sgt J.D. Nelson said.
 
Fire and medical personnel were at the scene treating a 60-year-old man who then assaulted a paramedic and ran back inside the home, Nelson said.
 
Deputies were called to the scene and entered the home searching for the man, he said. The man was hiding inside the home and came out with a baseball bat swinging at deputies, Nelson said.
 
The man struck a sergeant's arm disabling his rifle, he said. The sergeant managed to pull out a handgun and with a deputy shot and killed the man, Nelson said. No one else was inside the home during the shooting, he said.
