Alhambra , CA

An alleged domestic violence call in Alhambra Saturday night ended up in an officer involved shooting that left a suspect hospitalized with undetermined injuries and facing felony charges.

Alhambra Police received a phone call around 8:30 p.m. reporting the incident in the 1900 block of South Primrose Ave.  near Ross Ave.

Officers responded to the scene and began questioning the alleged victim. The suspect, who had apparently fled the location in his vehicle prior to the police response, drove back to the scene. Officers ordered the suspect to shut off and exit his vehicle.  According to a press release from Alhambra Police, a gunshot was heard and the suspect attempted to flee the scene in his vehicle. After again returning to the scene in his vehicle, a short stand off with officers occurred.

Police using less lethal force, in this case bean bag rounds,  neutralized the suspect and detained him without further incident. The suspect was not struck by gun fire, the Alhambra Police Department news release stated..

The suspect was identified as Juan Gabriel Miranda, 46, of Alhambra. He was transported to a local hospital and will be booked on felony charges including assault on a police officer and domestic violence.

No officers were struck by gun fire but one officer did sustain a minor injury of an undisclosed nature during the incident.

In an unrelated incident, LA County Sheriff’s Deputies took a carjacking suspect into custody Saturday night following a pursuit that started in the City of Commerce.

According to L.A. County Sheriff’s the victim of the carjacking said a person pointed a gun at him and took his vehicle, a BMW 325i.  Deputies caught up with the suspected carjacker in East Los Angeles and pursued the vehicle into Alhambra where it collided with another vehicle at Mission Road and Fremont Ave. and an arrest was made.
