Los Angeles County plainclothes deputies working with the Pasadena police were fired upon by one of two suspects this afternoon in Pasadena, a police lieutenant said.
About 12:20 p.m. authorities saw the suspectsâ€™ vehicle and at some point the suspectâ€™s vehicle struck a deputyâ€™s vehicle, said Pasadena police Lt. Jason Clawson.
The suspects fled the location, abandoning their vehicle, said Clawson, adding that one of the two suspects fired at the deputies. One of the deputies fired back. It was not immediately known if a suspect was struck. No deputies were injured.
Clawson said containment has been set up at Maple and Vista, leading up to Orange Grove. Traffic was being diverted for police activity.
There is a large and continuing Police and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department presence on the Wilson Avenue Bridge across the Freeway at this time. As more is known, we will keep you posted.
