Update #LASD Deputy-Involved Shooting, 38500 blk 10th St East, Palmdale

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide detectives are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding a Deputy-Involved Shooting that occurred on the 38500 block of 10th Street East, Palmdale, on Thursday, June 22, 2017, at approximately 3:47 a.m.
 
 
Detectives have learned, Palmdale Station deputies responded to a call for service of “loud music.”  When deputies arrived and walked up the driveway, a 60-65 pound pit bull aggressively charged at the deputies and attacked one of them, biting the deputy on his left knee.  
 
At that time, a male Hispanic juvenile came from behind the apartment complex and restrained the pit bull and took the dog to the rear of the apartment complex. Deputies then retreated back onto the street for safety and rendered aid to the injured deputy. 
 
As the deputies were awaiting the arrival of paramedics, the pit bull came from the rear of the apartment and again charged at deputy personnel.  At that point, two deputies shot at the pit bull from a five to seven feet distance, at which time, the pit bull retreated back to the rear of the apartment complex into the carport area.  Deputies returned to the rear of the complex in an attempt to corral the dog to prevent additional victims.
 
As deputies walked to the rear carport area, they found a juvenile on the ground suffering from what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the chest. Deputies provided medical aide pending the arrival of paramedics. The juvenile was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
 
Preliminary investigation indicated the first six to eight feet where the shooting occurred with the pit bull, there was evidence of skip rounds on the driveway area.  Detectives believe when the juvenile came out from behind the building, which was approximately 40 feet away from where the shooting occurred with the dog, the juvenile may have been struck by one of the skip rounds.
The deputy who was bitten by the pit bull, also was hit by a bullet fragment to his right leg. The injured deputy was transported to a local hospital to be treated for his injuries and is listed in stable condition.
 
 
Based on the pit bull’s condition, it will be euthanized. 
  
A check of call for service for this location reveals deputies responded at least four times for loud music and gang activity in the past two months. 
 
The investigation is active and ongoing. No additional information available at this time.
