Shooting in Sheriff's station parking lot leaves man injured

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Under Attack At Station

The suspect, who officials believe to be 47-years-old, arrived at the station early Monday to register.

"The suspect went to his vehicle and was shooting from the vehicle", McDonnell said. The deputies "felt something was amiss" and followed the man into the parking lot, where he opened fire on them, McDonnell said.

The shooter, identified only as a man in his late 40s, went to his Chevrolet sport utility vehicle parked in the lot and opened fire on deputies as they approached, authorities said.

Authorities believe he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Nicole Nishida says the suspect was found dead early Monday after a SWAT team approached a vehicle at the Temple City station.

Video from news helicopters showed deputies taking cover behind patrol vehicles with their guns pointed at a auto in the parking lot. 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.

Investigators do not know how many shots were fired.

The public is being urged to stay away from the Temple City sheriff's station on Las Tunas Drive after a man shot at the station Monday morning, according to the Sheriff's Department.

A sheriff's SWAT team has taken charge of the response.

No deputies were injured in the shooting, which occurred about 7:15 a.m., the Sheriff's Department tweeted. These include separate investigations by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner - Coroner and the Sheriff's Homicide Bureau and Internal Affairs Bureau.
