LAGUNA BEACH (CBSLA) —   An officer-involved shooting was reported in Laguna Beach Sunday.

The shooting occurred around 3 p.m. in the 100 block of St. Anna Drive, police said.

Desmond Shaw, reporting in Sky2, said police were being mum about the details of what led up to the shooting or if the suspect was wounded.

Officials did say no officers were injured in the incident.

Crystal Cruz reported from the scene for the KCAL News at 8 p.m.

She reported the suspect was a woman with a gun. Witnesses reported seeing the woman with the gun — it was unclear if she was waving it around or threatening people with it. Several witnesses said the woman appeared to be suicidal.

Police located the woman and shot her when she got out of  her SUV without dropping the weapon. Several people said they saw the woman aim the weapon at police.

The 37-year-old suspect was taken to a local hospital and in surgery. There was no word on her condition.

On the News at 10 p.m. she has spoken to witnesses who said they saw the woman drinking and acting erratically.

“The gunshots were very loud and people started scattering on the beach,” said “it had been a beautiful day today.”

The Orange County D.A.’s office was investigating along with the Laguna Police Department.
