VIDEO: Off-Duty LAPD Officer in Shooting, Suspect Detained

A suspect has been detained for questioning in connection to a shooting involving him and an off-duty LAPD officer while they were in their cars in Santa Clarita Sunday.

The shooting occurred at about 10:10 a.m. at a stop sign on Rainbow Glen Canyon and Swallow Court. The suspect's small white car drove up next to the off-duty officer's car and the officer fired multiple shots at the other man, authorities said.

It was unclear what caused the 25-year veteran police officer to open fire. Authorities initially said that the man pulled up next to the off-duty officer's car and began shooting first.

LAPD Det. Meghan Aguilar said it was unclear if the suspect was even armed. No injuries were reported.

It would be my guess that the officer saw something that caused him to think he was in mortal danger such as semi-automatic weapons or weapon pointing at him.

I can only hope and pray that this incident is judged by the facts ,officers are men and women first !
