LANCASTER (CNS) – One man is in custody today after a shootout involving deputies in Lancaster.

Los Angeles Sheriff’s deputies on patrol near the Big Shotz Bar & Grill at 227 Pillsbury Street saw two suspects fire at each other at 1:49 a.m. Saturday, according to Lt. Jonathan Hoyt, of the Lancaster Station.

“They just happened to be right there,” he said. “We also shot at one of them.”

No one was hit by any of the bullets, Hoyt said.

One suspect was arrested. Investigators are still looking for the other suspect.

It was unclear whether deputies had fired at the suspect who got away, or the one who was picked up.

The investigation is being handled by the Operation Safe Streets gang unit.
