Search for gunman who shot LA deputy in Lancaster


LANCASTER- A massive manhunt for the shooter who ambushed a group of Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies in Lancaster.
One of them was shot but wasn’t seriously hurt.

It happened at the sheriff’s station at Lancaster Blvd and Sierra Highway.
21 year old Deputy Angel Reinosa was hit while heading to his car in the employee parking lot yesterday afternoon. The sheriff’s office says the wound was minor.

Deputies searched for the sniper inside a block-long, four-story building that overlooks the sheriff’s facility. Tactical teams were working their way through the building last night, evacuating some people and having others shelter in place.

There is no description of the shooter. The mayor says it appears that the shooting was a random act.
