An armed off-duty Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy has died after being shot by police at a golf course in Fontana, authorities confirmed Wednesday.

"The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is deeply saddened to hear of the tragic shooting incident involving our off-duty deputy who passed away," the agency said in a statement. "We are in close communication with Fontana Police Department and the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department as they conduct their ongoing investigation. This incident is extremely difficult for the family, our personnel, and the officers involved.

After a man opened fire inside the home, he walked away from the scene with two handguns and officers later found him near the Sierra Lakes Golf Course, according to the Fontana Police Department. No one was reported injured in that shooting. "When I came out, he had just walked over to the golf course and you hear the gunshots," neighbor Myesha Dowe said. "I'm in awe because over here nothing like that happens."

At some point when officers confronted the off-duty deputy on the golf course, police opened fire. The deputy was taken to a hospital suffering at least one gunshot wound.
