**UPDATE** LASD Homicide Detectives Responding to Deputy Involved Shooting, 3400 block of 15th Street West, Rosamond

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Detectives are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding a deputy-involved shooting.   The incident occurred on Wednesday, June 17, 2020 at approximately 4:33 P.M. at the 3400 block of 15th Street West, in the City of Rosamond.  
 
Homicide Investigators have learned that Detectives from the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station were investigating a case involving domestic violence, assault with a deadly weapon, terrorist threats and false imprisonment.  The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office had filed 12 felony charges against the suspect and there was an active warrant for his arrest.  Palmdale Detectives enlisted the help of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Major Crimes Bureau-Surveillance Apprehension Team, to locate and arrest the suspect.  The suspect was reportedly armed with a black, semi-automatic handgun when he assaulted the victim.

The suspect was identified as 31 year old Terron Jammal Boone, of Palmdale.  It was reported that he was the half-brother of Robert Fuller, who had been discovered hanging from a tree on June 10, 2020 and is currently the subject of a death investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau and the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner – Coroner.

On June 17, 2020, the domestic violence investigation led the Major Crimes detectives to the 3400 block of 15th Street West in the City of Rosamond, in Kern County.  The detectives observed a male who matched the wanted suspect’s description, seated in the front passenger’s seat of a blue SUV. 

Detectives effected a traffic stop of the vehicle to identify the occupant and if confirmed, arrest the suspect.  The vehicle was driven by an adult female, who was unrelated to the crime being investigated.  As the vehicle came to a stop inside the parking lot of an apartment complex on 15th Street West, the suspect opened the front passenger door of the vehicle and fired several shots at the deputies, from a black, semi-automatic handgun, impacting a detective’s vehicle.  

Three Detectives and their field supervisor returned fire, striking the suspect numerous times in the upper torso.  The suspect was taken into custody.  Paramedics responded to provide emergency medical treatment, however the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.  The suspect’s handgun was recovered at the scene. 
 
The female driver was also struck by gunfire and transported to a local hospital where she was treated and released.  
 
A seven year old girl, who was seated in the rear seat of the vehicle, was uninjured.  No deputies were injured. 
 
The deceased suspect was positively identified as Terron Jammal Boone, by the Kern County Coroner’s Office.
  
Whenever a deputy-involved shooting occurs involving Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies, and a person is struck by gunfire, multiple independent investigations immediately begin at the scene.  These include separate investigations by the Sheriff's Homicide Bureau and Internal Affairs Bureau.  The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department immediately notifies the Office of the Inspector General who sends a representative to the incident scene and provides independent oversight throughout the investigative process.  Once concluded, a preliminary review is conducted by the Critical Incident Review Panel to determine whether any immediate actions are warranted.  Every aspect of the shooting is reviewed by the Sheriff's Executive Force Review Committee.  Input from Constitutional Policing Advisors is provided during the process.  The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, Justice System Integrity Division, conducts a legal analysis to determine whether any criminal charges will be filed and if the shooting was legally justified.  

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.  If you wish to remain anonymous, call “LA Crime Stoppers” by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477), using your smartphone by downloading the “P3 MOBILE APP” on Google play or the App Store, or using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org
