Man listed critical condition following domestic dispute

A man is in critical condition earlier this week after being shot during a possible domestic dispute in Palmdale.

Deputies from the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station were called at 4:47 p.m. Monday to the 37400 block of Sierra Highway where they found the victim in the street with a gunshot wound, Lt. Derrick Alfred said at a news conference at the scene.

Alfred said the station received multiple calls regarding a possible domestic violence situation involving the victim and his ex-girlfriend, who drove to the scene of the shooting after a possible altercation.

“The victim and his ex-girlfriend were stopped in the middle of the street and the man was standing outside, next to the car, when someone pulled up behind them and fired shots at the victim,” Alfred said.

Anyone with information about the shooting was asked to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
