Sheriff's deputies in Compton have captured a suspect who was involved in a pursuit and deputy-involved shooting in the 1100 block of South Dwight Avenue.

Deputies were responding to reports of loud music at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday when they saw two vehicles driving without any lights on.

The deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop on one of them, when the suspect bolted from the vehicle.

After a brief chase, the suspect produced what appeared to be a gun, and deputies fired. The suspect was not hit, and eventually surrendered. No deputies were injured.
