A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy was shot and wounded Monday night in City Terrace.
The shooting occurred just before 11:30 p.m. on the 1000 block of De Garmo Drive during some type of altercation in the hillside district. Sheriff’s deputies were swarming the scene. Capt. Darren Harris confirmed a shooting occurred but had no further details.
The Sheriff’s Department tweeted Tuesday that the deputy had surgery after being shot in the upper torso and was in stable condition.
The department said three suspects were involved and one of those was dead at the scene.
The shooting comes about a week after a gunfight in East L.A. that left two sheriff’s deputies wounded and a suspected gang member dead.
