SOUTH EL MONTE (CBS) — An off-duty Los Angeles County Sherriff’s deputy has been involved in a shooting on the 60 Freeway.

The incident happened around 2:40 p.m. Friday between Peck and Rosemead on the Pomona Freeway. Sheriff’s officials say a Hispanic man riding in a silver SUV was shot by the deputy. The deputy was not injured.

It’s unclear why gunfire was exchanged. The victim was taken to an area hospital and is expected to survive.

 The California Highway Patrol briefly shut down a portion of the Pomona Freeway to investigate. It was reopened around 3:40p.m.

      Yep. He probably gets a toaster for this one, and a chance to win a trip to Hawaii!! But let’s face it: we ALL benefit from “trigger happy cops” most of the time. Too bad one didn’t punch your mom in the ovaries before she got knocked up with you.

    You know, it is funny how these “public servants”, that obviously work for the county, and yet they think and feel they OWN the county and the cities in it. That’s where our tax payer’s money goes. See the patrol cars “TO PROTECT AND SERVE”
    Protect and serve their pockets, that what it is….

    You do realize this idiot shot at the off duty cop first in a road rage incident before the officer returned fire and wounded him, right? The jerk picked on the wrong “victim” this time.
