By Brian Hews

An incident on Friday afternoon in Bellflower has resulted in members of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau being sent to the 9400 block of Alondra Boulevard.

Details of the incident beginning to unfold and and officials are referring to the situation as a “deputy-involved hit shooting.”

No deputies were injured but one suspect was hit. The condition of the suspect is unknown as of 4 p.m., and there are no outstanding suspects. The person involved is being described only as “a male.” No age, race or other details of the person hit was provided.

“There is no further information available at this time,” said Deputy Kim Manatt.

Whenever an Officer Involved Shooting occurs involving Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies and it results in the wounding of a suspect, multiple independent investigations immediately begin at the scene. These include separate investigations by the Office of the Los Angeles County District Attorney in addition to investigations by Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau and Internal Affairs Bureau.

Attorneys with the Los Angeles Office of Independent Review also respond to the scene and have full access to the facts known to the Sheriff’s Department throughout every phase of these investigations.

Once concluded, every aspect of the shooting is reviewed by the Sheriff’s Executive Force Review Committee.
