Deputies Kill Suspect Across From Sheriff's Station

The shooting occurred shortly after 1:30 p.m., Saturday in City of Industry.

Investigations continue Sunday into the bizarre shootout involving a carjacker
and sheriff's deputies in front of the sheriff's Industry station, just south of Baldwin Park. 

The shooting occurred shortly after 1:30 p.m., in the 15000 block of Stafford Street, according to Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Kimberly Unland

Detectives said deputies responded to an "armed carjacking'' call about 1:30 p.m after the suspect left a location, reportedly a used car lot, in a white Dodge Charger.

Deputies spotted the stolen vehicle and initiated a traffic stop, but the suspect refused and a pursuit was underway, ending on East Stafford Street near the sheriff's station in Industry.

The suspect got out of the vehicle and fired a semi-automatic weapon at deputies, Saldana said. The deputy-involved shooting occurred, leaving the suspect hit at least once.

The man, believed to be in his 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

No deputies were injured in the shooting, Saldana said. A semi-automatic weapon was recovered at the scene.

The shooting remained under investigation, she said.

Well, it's unfortunate that someone had to die in this case. but, Just as we don't have the right to take the life of others, we have the right to defend ourselves and our loved ones. In this case, the deputies did what was the only thing they could have done to serve and protect the community. Look at it this way, One less criminal out and about causing harm, damage , and pain to inoscent people. Great job deputies!
