Woman injured in deputy-involved shooting

Posted: Updated:

SPRING VALLEY (CNS) - An investigation was underway Monday into a deputy-involved shooting in which a Spring Valley woman was shot in the arm by a deputy who was checking her backyard for a masked man.

Deputies were called to 8900 block of Leigh Ave. shortly before 10:30 p.m. Sunday to investigate a suspicious man seen in the area wearing a ski mask, according to San Diego County sheriff's homicide Lt. Larry Nesbit.

Deputies arrived and determined the man had left the area, walking away in an eastbound direction, Nesbit said in a statement.

While checking for the man one to two blocks away from Leigh Ave., deputies entered the backyard of a residence in the 200 block of Via Tapia, Nesbit said.

"At some point, while in the backyard of the residence, there was contact between the deputies, who had their weapons drawn, and a female resident of the home," Nesbit said. "During that contact, one of the deputies fired from his service weapon. The female was struck in the arm by the round."

Paramedics took the wounded woman to an area hospital, where she was listed in good condition and expected to be released today, Nesbit said.

Information about the deputy who shot the woman was not immediately released.
