Woman Injured In Shooting Involving Deputies In Carson

CARSON (CBSLA) - A woman was injured in a shooting involving sheriff's deputies in Carson Wednesday.

Deputies were sent about 1 p.m. to a residence in the area of East Dominguez Street and South Prospect Avenue on a family disturbance call and a person armed with a knife and a gun prior to the shooting, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Authorities said when deputies arrived, they set up a containment of the location and asked for the occupants to exit the residence.

The suspect, described a Black woman in 20's, exited the residence with two family members. She was armed with a knife in one hand and a firearm in the other. The female suspect refused to comply with commands to drop the weapons and, at one point, pointed the firearm at deputies, officials said.

A deputy-involved shooting occurred at that point.

The woman was struck several times. She was transported to a local hospital where she is in fair condition.

No deputies or other civilians were injured during the incident.

Both the firearm and the knife were recovered at the scene.
