2 hurt, suspect barricaded after La Puente shooting, officials say

A suspect was barricaded in a La Puente home after a deputy-involved shooting occurred, officials said.

Few details about the incident were released, but Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Chen said deputies were called to Wing Lane and Azusa Avenue after receiving a call of an assault with a deadly weapon and a person seen with a gun.

Shots were fired when deputies arrived, Chen said.

Two people were injured in the incident, including one person who was barricaded, according to a spokesperson with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

It was not clear if one of the injured people was the suspect.

No deputies have been reportedly injured, he said.

The suspect was barricaded at a home near St. Martha Catholic Church, Chen said.

It’s unclear if anyone else was in the home with the suspect, he said. Deputies are using the church grounds as a command post for the incident.

This is a developing story.
