Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies are investigating a pedestrian-vs.-car shooting around 9 p.m. Friday that left two injured in Canyon Country, according to Sheriff’s Station officials.
“I can confirm that shots were fired,” said Lt. James Royal of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, adding through their investigation, deputies learned there were two people who transported themselves to the hospital, who are being treated for gunshot injuries.
Witnesses initially reported a shooting that involved a pedestrian and a vehicle, both of which left the scene, near the intersection of Silk Tree Way and Cherry Willow Drive. Deputies suspect a person walked up to the vehicle and opened fire.
