Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to reports of a person with a gun in a residential neighborhood in Canyon Country Tuesday night.
The call came in as an assault with a deadly weapon on Winterdale Drive just after 9 p.m., according to Lt. James Royal.
“The informant was (driving) on Winterdale (and) stopped at a stop sign, when a person walked in front of their car,” Royal said.
The suspect allegedly told the victim that he had committed a traffic violation, according to Royal.
“(The pedestrian then) allegedly pulled out a gun,” Royal said.
Upon further investigation, the suspect was believed to have brandished a weapon, then took off on foot, Royal added.
Though deputies have been unable to identify the suspect as of 10:30 p.m., the investigation remains ongoing.
