In search of gunman after deputy was injured outside Lancaster Sheriff's Station



Artillery opened fire on Wednesday
at the Lancaster Station in the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, leaving one deputy wounded.

Someone shoots in the helicopter station area and strikes 21-year-old deputy Angel Reynosa
in the shoulder as he walked toward his personal vehicle,
the authorities said. He
he was taken to a hospital, which does not appear to be a life-threatening grazing wound to his shoulder.

"My deputy is in stable condition at a local hospital. He was hit in the shoulder by one round, "said Sheriff Alex Vilaneuva. "We've put a building on hold nearby and are going through all our tactical steps right now."

Vilyanueva said deputies had blocked the area and believed the shooter was contained. The sheriff said the shot came from a considerable distance. It was not clear how many shots had been fired.

Officials believe the suspect is in a four-story apartment
structure. Deputies use binoculars to scan the building for a possible sniper, and officers are nearby. The SWAT team and the armored vehicles are on site.

Due to concerns about sniper fire, deputies were told to approach the area just to the west. Deputies are cleaning the buildings nearby, including a library and apartment complex.

The public was told to avoid the area.

A sheriff's department source said the gunman fired a high-velocity rifle that struck Reynosa.

made a radio call from the helicopter at about 2:53 pm and said there were two shots north of the helicopter from an apartment building nearby, according to preliminary information provided by authorities. Reinosa

Reynosa has been with the sheriff's department for one year and came to Lancaster Station in May, Capt. Todd Weber said at a news conference Wednesday night.

Mayor of Lancaster R. Rex Paris said the deputy's bulletproof vest had saved his life, but that the bullet had diverted into his shoulder.

"He was leaving the sheriff's station and was shot by a sniper," Paris said. "It's unclear in our city."

Paris said during a news conference that the shooter was firing from "a building full of people treated for mental illness."

But the shooter appears to have fired from a building that provides permanent supportive housing for a variety of people, including low- to moderate-income people and people with disabilities, diagnosed with mental illness or recently homeless.

The Mental Health Enrichment Building of Los Angeles, the Antelope Valley Building, shared parking with the apartment building but was not where the shooter fired it from, said a source who has no right to comment publicly.

The Associated Press presented this report.
