An off-duty Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy was hospitalized after being shot dead in Harbor City Monday night.
Authorities were called to the shooting at 7:04 p.m. in the 23300 block of Dorset Place, according to Officer Rosario Cervantes, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department.
Cervantes later confirmed that the victim was an off-duty sheriff’s deputy who went to the residence and “got involved in a family dispute.”
The MP was taken to a hospital and was in stable condition as of Monday night, Cervantes said.
The authorities did not reveal the MP’s identity. Deputy Tracy Koerner, a spokeswoman for the LA County Sheriff’s Department, said the deputy was a man but could provide no further information.
A man who lives in the house where the shooting took place was taken into custody and a handgun was seized at the scene, Cervantes said.
