Los Angeles, CA -

(CNS) A Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy was struck by a vehicle and a suspect was shot to death by deputies in South Los Angeles today.

The deputy-involved shooting and collision happened about 2:30 p.m. in the 11400 block of South Vermont Street near Imperial Highway, Deputy Kim Manatt of the Sheriff's Headquarters Bureau said.

The deputy was taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in unknown condition.

A witness at the scene told local media that two people she described as a boy and girl were arguing, and the girl called authorities. When a deputy arrived on scene, the male suspect began shooting, prompting gunfire from other deputies that killed the suspect, the witness said. She also said the girl was injured in the crossfire.

From Olga Ospina:

An L.A. County Sheriff's detective was hit by a car this afternoon, and the man behind the wheel was shot dead by another deputy.

Just after 2:30 p.m. a woman called authorities to report her children had been kidnapped from a shopping center near the corner of Vermont and Imperial Highway. She had a fight with her boyfriend, he threatened her with a knife and then took off in her car with her 2 young children inside.

According to Lt. Corina with the Sheriff's homicide bureau, the suspect dumped the 2 kids down the street at a grocery store parking lot. An 8 year old and and a 7 month old baby were left to fend for themselves. 10 to 15 minutes later, the 24 year old who was on parole, returned to the shopping center, driving at a high rate of speed. He plowed into one of the patrol cars and struck the detective who was standing outside. Another deputy opened fire, killing the suspect.

The detective was rushed to the hospital, but has since been released. The children were unharmed and have been reunited with their mother. The suspect, who was shot and killed, had a lengthy criminal history.
