  • Shooting Reported at Temple City Sheriff's Station

"We are grateful that no deputies were injured or killed in the Temple Station shooting", said Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs President Ron Hernandez.

Officials told NBC San Diego that the gunman, who was registering as a sex offender, opened fire on deputies Monday morning when they followed him back out to his vehicle.

They say the man walked into the sheriff's station in Temple City, about 15 miles from downtown Los Angeles, and told a deputy he wanted to register as a sex offender.

According to sheriff's Lt. Joe Mendoza, while the man was in the station, a deputy learned that he was wanted on a $40,000 felony warrant. It remains unclear whether the shots were initially fired from inside the vehicle.

The shooter, identified only as a man in his late 40s, went to his Chevrolet sport utility vehicle parked in the lot and opened fire on deputies as they approached, authorities said.

Two armored vehicles entered the parking lot about 8 a.m., with one of the vehicles approaching the SUV.

Authorities believe he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

At that point the suspect started shooting at deputies from inside his vehicle. Authorities later confirmed the suspect inside the SUV was dead.

"The deputies did engage in a gun battle with the suspect", Katz said.

Investigators do not know how many shots were fired.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Special Enforcement Bureau Special Weapons Team respond after a man fires shots in the parking lot of the Sheriff's Temple City Station in Temple City, CA., Monday, March 20, 2017. "Temple Station personnel engaged the suspect in an attempt to neutralize the threat, " a sheriff's statement said. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department immediately notifies the Office of the Inspector General who sends a representative to the incident scene and provides independent oversight throughout the investigative process.

The information is preliminary because the investigation is ongoing, Katz said.
