deputies100613LASD Press Release

 

Sheriff’s Homicide investigators are continuing their investigation surrounding the circumstances regarding a deputy-involved shooting that occurred on Sunday, October 6, 2013, in the 28600 block of Cloverleaf Place, Castaic.

Investigators have learned that deputies from the Santa Clarita Valley Station responded to the location regarding a “family disturbance” call. While en route to the location, the call was updated to a “suicidal man with a gun” call.

When deputy personnel arrived, they made a tactical approach to the residence. The suspect emerged from the garage area holding a rifle. The suspect refused to follow commands to drop the rifle. He pointed the rifle at the deputies, who in fear for their safety, fired at the suspect.

The suspect was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The weapon was recovered at the scene.

No deputies were injured.
