(KABC-TV via AP, File) FILE – This Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2019 file image taken from video provided by KABC-TV shows a sheriff’s department helicopter with a sniper in an open door searching for a gunman at large in Lancaster, Calif. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says a deputy who claimed he was shot in a station parking lot earlier this week was lying. Assistant Sheriff Robin Limon said at a news conference late Saturday that Wednesday’s “reported sniper assault was fabricated” by Angel Reinosa. The 21-year-old deputy told authorities he used a knife to damage his uniform shirt. He’s been relieved of duties and will face a criminal investigation. He didn’t explain his motive.
