The shooting happened at about 3:45 a.m. Thursday in Palmdale, California, after deputies responded to a report of loud music, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

The 17-year-old male was struck by a bullet that ricocheted off the ground when deputies opened fire as the pit bull lunged at them for a second time, Capt. Christopher Bergner said at a press conference. Two deputies shot at the animal "while the pet owner simultaneously tried to jump onto the dog to stop it from attacking deputy personnel", a sheriff's statement said.

"As they were waiting for medical treatment to arrive, the pit bull came from the rear carport area location, and again charged deputies", Bergner said.

The shooting prompted the animal to retreat, and deputies regrouped as they tried to formulate a plan to capture the dog, so that no one else would be victimized by the animal, the captain said.

Trump tells senators House health bill 'mean'
Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and Susan Collins , R-Maine, to a measure that blocks funding to Planned Parenthood is among them. Last month , Lee said the House bill contains numerous fatal procedural flaws and would have to be rewritten.

Bergner calls the shooting an extremely unfortunate incident. "At that point, two deputies engaged the dog in gunfire".

The station reports that according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, the teen, who was identified by family as Armando Garcia, was likely struck by a bullet that ricocheted off the driveway.

Preliminary information indicated the deputies didn't see the teen when he walked around the building, according to Bergner. He was taken to Antelope Valley Hospital where he died, the sheriff's department said.

The deputies went after the dog to prevent it from harming anyone else, he said. As he jumped on the dog, he was struck in the chest with a bullet. "Therefore, Department members shall not use firearms to shoot animals fighting with other animals (e.g., dogs)", Nishida said.
