COMPTON ( —A Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy shot a domestic violence suspect in Compton Tuesday night.

Authorities responded to a domestic violence call in the 400 block of East Darlan Street.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they were confronted by a man involved in the reported dispute.

That’s when a deputy was forced to discharge his weapon, according to Sky9’s Stu Mundel.

Officers immediately set up a perimeter, but the suspect apparently fled the area in a silver BMW.

It’s unclear whether the man was struck by gunfire.

No deputies were injured in the incident.
