Sheriff's deputies who were responding to a 911 call in East Pasadena shot a woman who allegedly pointed a gun at them Friday morning.
The woman's husband called 911 about 10:45 a.m. and told authorities his wife had a medical condition and was armed with a gun, said Lt. Holly Francisco of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau.
Numerous neighbors also called to report a woman on the street with a gun, Francisco said.
Temple Station deputies were sent to the 3300 block of Yorkshire Road (map) in response to the initial call, according to sheriff's Sgt. Lopez.
When they arrived, a woman holding a gun pointed it at two deputies before one the deputies opened fire, Francisco said.
It was not clear if the woman had fired the weapon she was holding, the lieutenant said.
The woman was struck by the gunfire and suffered injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening, but her current condition was unknown, Francisco said.
Authorities had been called to the same location on at least one other occasion, according to Francisco. The area is residential, and a neighbor who had lived there for nearly three decades said nothing like Friday's shooting had occurred in her time there.
None of the deputies were injured in the shooting, sheriff's Deputy Ryan Rouzan said.
