LOS ANGELES—Authorities say a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy has shot and wounded a suspected gang member after he pulled a gun during a foot chase.

Deputy Jeff Gordon says the shooting occurred Saturday in East Los Angeles after the suspect ran from deputies. Gordon says the deputy opened fire when the man pointed a .40 caliber semiautomatic pistol at them. The loaded gun was recovered at the scene.

The unidentified man was wounded in the upper torso and is hospitalized in stable condition.

Gordon says the suspect is a known gang member with a criminal history. He will be charged with assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer.

The shooting was the third involving a Los Angeles deputy this weekend. The incidents include a fatal shooting on Friday.
