An investigation is underway into a shooting involving deputies in Studio City on Thursday morning, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The incident began when detectives from the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station went to a house in the 11500 block of Dona Teresa Drive to serve search warrants, L.A. County Deputy Eric Ortiz said.

At some point, shots were fired; it was unclear whether the gunfire came from deputies, individuals inside the home, or both.

“At this time, we don’t know,” Ortiz said. “There were deputies involved in the shooting, but we don’t know if it was the individuals at the residence or the deputies themselves.”

At least four people were inside the location at the time. None of them were hurt, or no deputies were injured, according to Ortiz.

One person could be seen surrendering to authorities around 7:40 a.m., Sky5 video showed.

Ortiz said it was not immediately clear if all four individuals were detained.

A sheriff’s SWAT team and numerous K-9 units were deployed at the scene as authorities searched for any additional people inside the home.

No information was immediately released about the warrants.

Streets were temporarily shut down in the area amid the investigation, but all were reopened by noon, according to the Sheriff’s Department.
