Authorities investigating after at least 1 person shot in active shooting at California fire station


At least one person has been shot at a fire station in Agua Dulce, California, Los Angeles County Deputy Michelle Sanchez told CNN Tuesday.

Sanchez said it is unclear, but there may be more victims.

“It is with heavy hearts that the LACoFD confirms that a tragic shooting occurred at approximately 10:55 a.m. today at FS 81 in Agua Dulce,” the Los Angeles County Fire Department tweeted Tuesday. “The Dept. is still in the process of gathering additional information & are cooperating with law enf. throughout this ongoing incident. We will provide updated information when available.”

Agua Dulce is in the Santa Clarita Valley, about 30 miles north of Downtown Los Angeles.

After the shooting, authorities descended on a home about 10 miles away in Acton, which erupted in flames. The fire was believed to be connected to the shooting, and members of a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s SWAT team were seen being dropped into the scene of the fire via helicopter, according to aerials provided by CNN affiliate KABC-TV.

SWAT personnel were searching for an assault with a deadly weapon suspect, according to an LASD tweet.
