According to ABC7 Eyewitness News says police responded to a report of a reckless DUI suspect. The pursuit then turned to a deadly shooting that began at the 400 block of West Spruce Street in Compton at about 11:35 p.m. Reports state that gunfire was exchanged between deputies and the black Cadillac Escalade, leaving one officer injured.

Upon inspection of the SUV, involved in the shooting investigators found that the vehicle was registered to A Keenon Jackson; YG’s birth name. One person was detained at the scene, and it is believed there is one suspect who remains at large. Detectives are still investigating if there is a connection between YG, his vehicle and suspects. We’re hoping for the best and that this all turns out to be a misunderstanding!
