A deputy-involved shooting occurred this morning in Compton after a deputy ran a vehicle’s license plate, it came back stolen, and the suspect brandished a knife while resisting arrest.
The incident occurred this morning around 0700 at the 2100 block of North Long Beach Boulevard. (A stolen vehicle on Long Boulevard–shocking!)
The suspect was struck by the deputy’s gunfire and listed in critical but stable condition.
Here’s the Department’s statement.
In other major news, there was a burglary in Malibu.
