UPDATE #LASD Homicide Investigators are Responding to a Deputy Involved Shooting Investigation, 2500blk Sale Place, #HuntingtonPark

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Homicide investigators are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding a deputy involved shooting. The incident occurred Monday, January 24, 2022, at approximately 6:08 a.m., on the 2500 block of Sale Place in Huntington Park. 
 
Investigators have learned, at approximately 4:07 a.m., Century Station received a call of an individual on a rooftop of a residence at the 2500 block of Sale Place. When deputies arrived, they were unable to locate the individual.
 
At approximately 5:19 a.m., the Century Station deputies received a second call at/near the same location, of an individual on a rooftop. As deputies were responding to that location, the call for service was updated to “gun shots heard” in the area. When deputies arrived, they obtained information the suspect was last seen fleeing the area on foot westbound on Sale Place. 
 
Deputies set up a containment of the area and requested an air unit to assist. Deputies then receive information the individual was back on a rooftop in the area, and additional gun shots were heard. Once the air unit arrived, they were able to locate the suspect who was armed, and started shooting at both the helicopter and deputies on the containment. During that time, a deputy assisting with containment was involved in a deputy involved shooting as the suspect was firing his weapon while on the roof top.
 
Special Enforcement Bureau (SEB) deputies  were requested to respond to the location to assist. A second containment was established around the residence where the suspect located on top of the roof.  At approximately 7:38 a.m., the suspect was taken into custody by SEB personnel.
 
The suspect is described as a male Hispanic in his late 20’s. He sustained a gunshot wound to the lower torso and was transported to a local hospital where he’s listed in serious condition.
 
A handgun was recovered in close proximity to where the suspect was taken into custody.
 
No deputies were injured during the incident.
 
No additional information is available at this time.
 
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.

 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.
