A suspect was believed barricaded inside a home in Palmdale after being shot at by a deputy on Saturday night, officials said.

It was not immediately clear whether the suspect had been wounded in the deputy-involved shooting, which took place about 9:20 p.m. in the 4000 block of Karling Place, Deputy Marvin Crowder of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Information Bureau said.

The suspect fled into a nearby home and refused orders to surrender, he said. No deputies were hurt in the encounter.

The standoff continued Saturday night.
