An investigation is underway after a man was hospitalized after being shot by a Pomona police officer Sunday evening. 

Authorities responded to the 200 block of Las Brisas Circle around 7:30 p.m. for a report of shots fired during a domestic disturbance, according to a statement by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

"The suspect left the residence in a vehicle at a high rate of speed and caused a traffic collision at the intersection of Holt Avenue and White Avenue," according to the sheriff's statement.

When the suspect did not comply with orders to exit the vehicle, officers created a barricade around the vehicle, and an officer- involved shooting occurred, officials said. 

"Preliminary reports indicate the suspect pointed a firearm at officers," Pomona police said in a statement, noting that no officers were injured.

The suspect was struck by gunfire and taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition, according to PPD Chief Michael Ellis. 

No other injuries were reported and a firearm was recovered at the scene. The suspect's name has not been released. 

SkyCal flew over the scene, where four police cars could be seen surrounding a white truck with significant damage to the front end. A SWAT BearCat was sitting a short distance away, in between the truck and another vehicle with damage. A massive portion of the intersection was blocked off by police tape.   

Both the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office will be handling the shooting investigation.
