Just spoke to a man who lives up the street from this road block. He says when he left his home there was a wall of flames coming toward it. He thinks his house is gone.

Media is now being evacuated from here because fire is approaching. Moving closer to Lake Hughes.
Flames are starting to crest the hillside and are moving east toward Lake Hughes in rural LA County. This fire has burned 10,000 acres now. #lakefire @ABC7
As night falls, the flames continue to rage at the #LakeFire. The smoke is blackening the sky. @ABC7

Mayor of Lancaster says an @LASDHQ #deputy was shot by a #SNIPER.

The rookie deputy was walking in the sheriff’s station parking lot when he was shot by someone in a nearby mental health facility. That building overlooks the sheriff’s station parking lot bit.ly/31XPpdw
The suspect is reportedly somewhere inside the mental health facility.

The LA County Sheriff’s deputy is in the hospital, but is expected to recover. His bullet proof vest reportedly deflected the bullet. I’m told he is a young, rookie deputy.
A @LASDHQ Captain tells us the injured deputy is just 21-years-old. He is a patrol trainee who has been with the department for a year. He is in good spirits, and is going to be OK.

A HUGE stampede of people rushed out of the @NipseyHussle memorial area. People thought they heard something break or a loud noise and started running. @ABC7
