Two suspects and a juvenile were taken into custody in connection with a deputy-involved shooting in Norwalk, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department officials said Tuesday.

Detectives responded to Hermosillo Park, located in the 11900 block of 162nd Street, regarding a shooting around 5 p.m. Monday. When they arrived, they saw three men fleeing the scene. One of the men pulled what appeared to be a gun and pointed it at deputies.

A deputy-involved shooting occurred, and the suspects fled into a nearby house in the 11900 block of 162nd Street, sheriff's officials said. No officers were injured in the deputy-involved shooting.

A gunshot victim was never found at the location, but a firearm was recovered, according to sheriff's officials.

Authorities said all three suspects got away and a containment area was set up north of the 91 Freeway to 166th Street and it extended east of Pioneer Boulevard.

After an hourslong search, two men and a juvenile exited a nearby home and were taken into custody, officials said. A gun was recovered after a search of the house.

The suspects and underage boy, whose names were not released, were arrested and transported to the Norwalk Station, where they were booked for assault on a peace officer. They were being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Anyone with more information was urged to call the L.A. County Sheriff's Department's Norwalk station at (562) 863-8711. Those wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
