Norwalk man suspected of shooting at deputies

NORWALK — Authorities arrested a Norwalk man early Saturday after he allegedly shot at sheriff’s deputies in a gang-related attack, officials said.
Walter Morales, 18, was booked on suspicion of attempted murder of a peace officer and was being held without bail, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Bill Evans said.
The incident began about 2:40 a.m. at Mapledale Street and Cabrillo Avenue when two deputies pulled over a car for a traffic stop, Evans said.
“The vehicle abruptly stopped in the middle of the street,” Evans said.
Morales got out of the car and fired a handgun at deputies, he said.
“The vehicle fled the scene, leaving the shooting suspect behind,” Evans said.
Morales fled into a residential neighborhood where he was found a short time later with the help of a police dog, the lieutenant said.
A gun was found near the spot where Morales was hiding, he added.
He was hospitalized for treatment of minor dog bite injuries before being booked, he said.
The car that fled the scene was not found, Evans said, and the investigation was ongoing.
