Off-duty Los Angeles sheriff’s deputy involved in Sylmar shooting

An investigation was underway Monday after an off-duty Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy was involved in a shooting in Sylmar late Sunday night.

The incident took place around 11:10 p.m. near the intersection of Hubbard Street and Foothill Boulevard.

It was unclear exactly where the shooting took place but video showed crime scene tape marking off an area around the gas pumps at the Sylmar Gas station.

The off-duty deputy was apparently not injured in the incident, a sheriff’s department spokesperson confirmed.

No details about what prompted the off-duty deputy to open fire were available.

It was unclear if anyone was struck by the gunfire but video did show police taking pictures of a white Tesla in the parking lot of the Olive View Medical Center about two miles away from the gas station.
