Los Angeles County deputies fatally shoot male suspect

A 17-year-old dog owner was killed in a deputy-involved shooting early Thursday

The two deputies shot at the pit bull "while the pet owner simultaneously tried to jump onto the dog to stop it from attacking deputy personnel", an internal memo said.

Los Angeles County sheriff's officials say deputies have fatally shot a male suspect in Palmdale.

Officials responded to a noise disturbance at around 3:40 a.m. after someone complained about a loud party.

Deputies had responded to a report of loud music at "a single-story apartment complex with two apartments in the front, carports to the rear, and another set of two apartments to the rear of the carport", said sheriff's Capt. Christopher Bergner.

Garcia was able to tie up the dog but it broke free and attacked again. "At that point, two deputies shot at the pit bull from a 5- to 7-feet distance, at which time, the pit bull retreated back to the rear of the apartment complex into the carport area".

The deputy bitten by the pit bull was also hit in the leg by a bullet fragment, the sheriff's office said. The deputies then opened fire on the pit bull.

"He may have been struck by one of the skip rounds in what we're calling an extremely, extremely unfortunate incident", said the captain. He was taken to Antelope Valley Hospital where he died, the sheriff's department said.

Animal control planned to euthanize the dog. She said a friend of her nephew came knocking on her door frantically looking for the boy's mother.

Multiple agencies are investigating the deadly shooting, including the L.A. County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner, the sheriff's Homicide Bureau and Internal Affair Bureau.

Robinson, whose daughter lives in the apartment complex near where the shooting happened, told KTLA she never witnessed the dog being aggressive.
