A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s K-9 officer based at the Santa Clarita Valley Station was instrumental in apprehending the suspect in Wednesday’s parole agent shooting in Lake View Terrace.

“It became necessary for the K-9 to bite him,” said Capt. Mike Parker of the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau.

The shooting occurred at approximately 1:30 p.m. inside a home near Foothill Boulevard and Christy Avenue when a state parole compliance check went bad.

The parolee pulled an unknown weapon and shot a California state parole agent in the face. The agent was reportedly conscious and talking when he was admitted to Providence Holy Cross Hospital where he remains in stable condition.

The parolee sustained multiple gunshot wounds when the agent’s partner returned fire, but the injuries were not life-threatening. The suspect fled on foot.

The agent who shot the suspect sustained minor injuries in the melee but not from gunfire, Parker said.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department handled the shooting because deputies from the sheriff’s COPS bureau accompany state parole agents on compliance checks and were already on scene.

Minutes after the shooting, a 9-1-1 call from a resident alerted officers to a possible suspect hiding under a trailer in the 10600 block of Foothill Boulevard. The single-family house at the exact address is owned by an investment company.

Sheriff deputies and LAPD officers set up a command post at the Lake View Terrace Equestrian Center.

Deputies worked an inner perimeter around the suspect’s location while LAPD officers worked an outer perimeter to keep the public out of the line of fire. California Highway Patrol officers got into the action when they were called upon to close a nearby section of the 210 Pasadena Freeway.

Deputies detained a man loosely fitting the 9-1-1 caller’s suspect description, but the man had not been shot. Deputies followed up on other witness information that pointed to other possible suspects, but those individuals had not sustained gunshot wounds, either.

Two schools – Brainerd Elementary and Delphi Academy – were closed. Deputies were in the process of evacuating Delphi when the actual suspect was located.

He was apprehended near the original location of the shooting at 5:53 p.m by the K-9 officer and SWAT team members working out of the SCV Station, Parker said. The suspect had been shot and was transported to a hospital.

As of 7 p.m., deputies were still working the scene and had not yet found the parolee’s gun. No names have been released.
