Armed suspect arrested, uninjured during deputy-involved shooting in Rosemead

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were involved in a shooting Tuesday with an armed man in Rosemead, but the suspect was uninjured and later detained, authorities said.

Deputies were trying to locate a man wanted in connection with a serious felony at a Motel 6 in the 1000 block of San Gabriel Boulevard, sheriff’s Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez said.

About 1:40 p.m., the man “emerged from the location” and brandished a handgun, prompting the shooting, Navarro-Suarez said.

The man was not hit, and deputies took him into custody, she said.


No deputies were injured during the arrest. A weapon was recovered at the scene.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
