EAST VALINDA (CBS) — A suspected thief dodged at least one bullet fired in his direction by a sheriff’s deputy Saturday in East Valinda.

The deputy-involved shooting occurred about 11:30 p.m. near Valley Boulevard and La Seda Road, said Sgt. Gerard Velona.

The incident began when a deputy spotted a man carrying what he suspected to be stolen property, authorities said.

According to authorities, the suspect reportedly fled into a mobile home park where he allegedly pointed a gun at the deputy.

Velona said the deputy defensively fired one round, but did not wound the suspect.

The man was subsequently detained after a police dog found and bit him.

A handgun was recovered at the scene, Velona added.

The suspect, whose name hasn’t been released, was taken to a hospital pending booking.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close bad cases.
    My dog was poisoned to death because I called the San Francisco Attorney General’s office to complain that corrupt FBI and DEA where stealing from me.
