****** 1st Update ******
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Homicide Detectives are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the officer-involved shooting involving a Customs and Border Protection Officer. The incident occurred on Friday, May 26, 2017, at 8:13 p.m. at North 1st Avenue and East Colorado Boulevard, in the city of Arcadia.  
 
Detectives have learned that an off-duty Customs and Border Protection Officer was walking along the sidewalk on 1st Street south of Colorado Boulevard, Arcadia, when he was suddenly attacked from behind by three male subjects.  One of the subjects hit him in the head several times while another subject pointed a handgun at the victim and demanded his property. 
 
The victim thought the subjects were going to rob and shoot him so he retrieved his department issued handgun. The victim shot at the subjects in an effort to defend himself.   The subject with the handgun, a male Black, 15 years-old, was struck by gunfire.  Another one of the subjects, a male Black, 14 years-old, was also struck by gunfire.  A third subject, a male Black, 14 years-old, was not hit and ran away when the shooting started. 
 
Officers from the Arcadia Police Department responded and detained the victim and subjects.  The subjects were transported to local hospitals to be treated for multiple gunshot wounds.  The subject’s handgun was recovered at the scene. 
 
The third subject was later located at a residence not far from the shooting scene.  This subject was booked at East Lake Juvenile Center for robbery. 
 
The subjects remain hospitalized for multiple gunshot wounds.  The victim had some bruising to his face which did not require medical treatment.
