PARAMOUNT ( —  A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy fired at, and missed, a suspect who was taken into custody.

Officials said the deputy approached the suspect —  who appeared to be under the influence of narcotics — around 4:25 p.m. in the 7300 block of Alondra Boulevard.

When the deputy asked the suspect to stop, the suspect became uncooperative and appeared to be reaching for a weapon, according to Deputy Kim Manatt of the Sheriff’s Department.

Additional deputies arrived on the scene and subdued the man. During a struggle, officials said the suspect also tried to kick the deputies.

Manatt said a Taser was also used to bring the man down.

The Department’s Internal Affairs Bureau is investigating.
