Deputies Shoot Gun-wielding Suspect in Santa Clarita Trailer Park


Sheriff's deputies shot a possibly suicidal motorcyclist involved in a family disturbance today at a trailer park in Santa Clarita, a sheriff's sergeant said.

Neighbors at the Parklane Estates mobile home park at 20400 Soledad Canyon Road called authorities around 2:50 a.m. because the man was shouting and revving his motorcycle, according to the sheriff's department and a news crew at the scene.

When deputies arrived, the man appeared to have a weapon, and they shot him in the stomach, said Sgt. Gary Miller of the sheriff's Santa Clarita Valley Station.

The deputies had responded to a family disturbance, Miller told City News Service.

"They encountered a male adult, possibly suicidal, and a deputy-involved shooting occurred," he said.

The man was identified in broadcast reports as Ralph Noriega, 42.

He is expected to survive.

No deputies were injured.
