[KHTS] Homicide detectives are investigating a deputy-involved shooting in Canyon Country Thursday evening.

A male adult suspect was struck by gunfire after failing to comply and allegedly approaching a deputy with a knife during a traffic stop. The suspect was transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital where he was pronounce dead, said Sgt. Bob Boese and Deputy Trina Schrader with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, in a news release.

The male adult suspect’s information will not be released at this time pending next-of-kin notification.

The incident occurred around 7:50 p.m. near the intersection of Shangri-La Drive and Nathan Hill Drive in Canyon Country.

A Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputy saw a vehicle that matched the description from an “assault with a deadly weapon” call the day before in the Newhall area, Boese said.

When the vehicle came to a stop, the suspect exited the vehicle and proceeded to yell profanities at the deputy while appearing to challenge him to a fight, Boese said. The deputy gave several commands to the driver to put his hands in the air, however, the driver refused to comply.

The deputy continued to give commands to the driver, but the suspect “ignored all commands, turned his body and aggressively reached behind his back appearing to retrieve a weapon, and began to draw the possible weapon on the deputy. At this point, a deputy-involved shooting occurred,” according to a news release by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Another male adult was a passenger in the vehicle and was interviewed by detectives.

Whenever a Deputy 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, according to a news release. Separate investigations are conducted by the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau and Internal Affairs Bureau, the Office of the Los Angeles County District Attorney, the Office of the Inspector General and a Critical Incident Review panel.

The panel is comprised of the concerned chief and unit commander, risk management and training personnel, the chairperson of the Executive Force Review Committee, and a representative from the Office of the Los Angeles County Counsel, according to the news release. Every aspect of a Deputy-Involved shooting is ultimately evaluated by the Sheriff’s Executive Force Review Committee, which decides whether or not there are any policy, tactical, supervisory or training violations or concerns.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. If you prefer to provide information anonymously, you may call “Crime Stoppers” by dialing (800) 222-TIPS (8477), or texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or by using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org.

    Stupid police always wanting to shoot and kill someone for whatever small reason I don’t understand why they can’t shoot them in leg or an area where they are able to take care the situation instead of making it worse how many deaths in canyon country has there been the last year with the cops doing the shooting I believe 3 and all suspects dead and the cops free I hope he loses his job and learns his lesson

    • Amy says:

    CC has become a drug gang infested neighborhood sad to say.

  6. trevor says:

    CC has become ??? LOL you must be new to SCV. CC has always been troubled with crime and drugs. Jakes way area for sure. Do I feel our local Sheriffs department uses excessive force at times sure!!! I was pulled out of my car in Stevenson Ranch ,handcuffed and told to shut my mouth or I’ll go to jail,when I asked why I was being detained. Why was i pulled over? My tags were expired. My fees were paid but my car needed to be smogged.Do I feel the Sheriff acted unprofessional , hell yes. Specially since I have a perfect record.But in the end if I would have gotten my smog cert in time I probably wouldn’t have gotten pulled over.I’m tired of people not taking responsibility for their own action.Ask a child in elementary school if pointing a weapon at an officer is a smart thing to do.If a child knows right from wrong then an adult has no other accuse then is being in-concomitant or you had a death wise.
