Three off-duty Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies were detained early Friday morning in La Mirada by fellow deputies who responded to reports of gunfire around a nearby park, officials said.
Deputies were sent to La Mirada Regional Park on the 13700 block of Adelfa Drive at 3:04 a.m., said Lt. Mary Leef. They took the three off-duty deputies in for questioning, she said.
Their names were not being released. Leef said it was unclear what the deputies were doing in the park.
"That's why it's still under investigation," she said, adding that no one was injured by gunfire.
The shooting incident is being investigated by the sheriff's Internal Affairs Bureau, the Office of Independent Review and the Internal Criminal Investigations Bureau.
