A shooter was barricaded in a Valinda home after exchanging gunfire with sheriff’s deputies Friday afternoon, authorities said.

The gunman was holed up in a residence on the 16900 block of Wing Lane, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said. A minor and a woman suffered injuries that the fire department said were mild to moderate.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said the woman was taken to a hospital for an injury that wasn’t caused by gunfire.

Neighbors were sheltering in place, the LASD said.
