We have with us on the phone right now Sergeant Ken Davidson of the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

Sergeant, hello.

KEN DAVIDSON, PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER: I'm here.

KAGAN: Can you tell us what is happening in Santa Clarita right now?

DAVIDSON: Well, right now we have ourselves a barricaded suspect who has been shooting randomly out of his house. Our special weapons team has been deployed at this time. We are in communications with him, trying to negotiate a peaceful surrender.

KAGAN: Any information about a deputy being shot?

DAVIDSON: Yes. We did have one deputy sheriff shot at the scene. He's been transported to a local hospital; his condition is unknown at this time.

KAGAN: Do you know where he was shot?

DAVIDSON: I'm not sure.

KAGAN: Any more information about the suspect? Does he have anybody else with him in the house?

DAVIDSON: I'm sorry, I didn't hear you.

KAGAN: Does the suspect who has barricaded himself have anybody else with him in the house?

DAVIDSON: That is unknown at this time. We believe he is -- he is armed with numerous weapons, and I believe our negotiations team is in contact with him, talking to him at this time.
