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.
