Associated Press LANCASTER, Calif. — A deputy was wounded when someone opened fire Wednesday outside a Los Angeles County sheriff's station and authorities searched a nearby building for the shooter, officials said. The deputy was standing with colleagues near a helipad in the parking lot of the Lancaster station when he was struck once in the shoulder, said Deputy Lilian Peck. The deputy was hospitalized in stable condition, Sheriff Alex Villanueva said. "We have set up containment on a nearby building and we are going through all our tactical steps right now," Villanueva said. ?? ?? ?? BREAKING: @LANLASD deputies ambushed in station parking lot.

Wait (@CBSLATom) August 21, 2019 A perimeter was set up as deputies used binoculars to determine where the gunfire came from. Officials believed the shooter was inside large four-story structure with many windows about a block away from the station. Deputies cleared other nearby buildings, including a library. Metrolink train service was halted in the area. Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris told KABC-TV he visited the wounded deputy in the hospital and he's "going to be OK." The sheriff's station is surrounded by shops and restaurants in a downtown area of the desert city with 160,000 residents about 60 miles north of downtown Los Angeles.
