About 4:45 p.m., Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies responded to the 14500 block of Claressa Avenue on reports of a shooting, Lt. Jorge Marchena said.

When deputies arrived, they were told a suspect drove by and opened fire at the home, which was occupied by several residents, Marchena said. No one was struck by gunfire.

Deputies arrested the man, who was near the vehicle when deputies arrived, and found a firearm, Marchena said. The exact time of the arrest was not immediately known.
