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.
