*Update* #LASD Det's Asst San Bernardino Cnty Sheriff's w/ Deputy-Involved Shooting Invest, 48th St E/E Av R8, Plm

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau detectives responded to assist San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department regarding a Deputy-Involved shooting that occurred in the city of Palmdale, Wednesday, January 10, 2018, at approximately 8:50 p.m.

Investigators have learned this incident began at approximately 8:04 p.m. in the city of Victorville, when a cell phone retail store was robbed by 4 armed male black adult suspects. San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies located the suspect vehicle in the unincorporated city of Adelanto, and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. The suspects failed to yield, and a pursuit ensued with the suspects travelling recklessly on various highways at high rates of speed, and at times, on the wrong side of the road.

The pursuit ultimately culminated on 48th Street East at East Avenue R-8, in the city of Palmdale, after San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies initiated a pursuit intervention technique.

Shortly thereafter, a traffic collision occurred between the deputy and suspect vehicles, at which time the pursuit terminated, and a deputy-involved shooting occurred. The three additional suspects fled the vehicle into the surrounding neighborhood. They were subsequently located and arrested without further incident.

One male black adult suspect was struck at least once in the torso by deputy gunfire. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

There is currently an ongoing search for the suspect’s weapons and any additional evidence related to these crimes.

There is no further information at this time.
