A deputy responding to a domestic disturbance call in La Puente early Friday shot and injured a man that authorities say was using a metal paint roller as a weapon.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies were sent to the 600 block of Willow Avenue to investigate the report around 1:20 a.m. Upon arrival, the deputies found a man arguing with family members outside a home.

According to the sheriff’s department, deputies tried to detain the man when he “armed himself with a metal paint roller, which he used as a weapon.”

Deputies told the man to drop the paint roller multiple times, but he refused. Then, authorities said, they used pepper spray on the man, but he still wouldn’t comply.

A deputy then shot the man when he raised the paint roller as a weapon toward a deputy, authorities said.

The suspect, who was described as an adult Hispanic male in his 40s, was taken to a local hospital, where he’s listed in stable condition.

A deputy was also transported to a local hospital for treatment for his injuries.
