PALMDALE (CBSLA) — A man who barricaded himself following a deputy-involved shooting in Palmdale has been shot and killed.

The incident initially unfolded around 9 p.m. Saturday on Karling Place when deputies responded to a call about a suspect wanted for assault with a deadly weapon.

The man fled inside a trailer on his property. He told authorities he refused to come out and that he was armed.

During that tense exchange, no one was hurt.  Karling Place was closed as a precaution.

The man later came out of the trailer but aimed his gun at authorities. A deputy-involved shooting occurred and the suspect reentered the trailer and barricaded himself inside.

Sunday evening, the LA County Sheriff’s reported that the suspect “continued to verbally threaten deputies with a firearm.”

Early Sunday, a second deputy-involved shooting unfolded after authorities say the suspect briefly left the trailer and fired upon them.

The suspect was killed by “apparent gunshot wounds,” said deputies.

No deputies were injured.

The suspect’s identity has not been released.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
