A deputy was injured when he was rammed by a car in a parking lot in South L.A. The suspect was shot by another officer and pronounced dead.

Los Angeles sheriff's authorities say a deputy was injured after being struck by a car while investigating a domestic violence case.

Deputy Kim Manatt says a suspect was pronounced dead in South Los Angeles on Friday afternoon, and a deputy was listed in stable condition.

KCAL-TV reports the deputy went to a supermarket parking lot, where a woman reported her boyfriend had taken her two young children after an argument.

Detectives said the suspect drove to the lot and rammed the deputy, sending him 15 feet into the air.

Another deputy who was there, believing the man was using the car as a weapon, fired several shots and killed the young man.
