ROSAMOND, Calif. — Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputies were involved Wednesday in a fatal shooting with the half-brother of Robert Fuller, the man who was found dead hanging in a Palmdale park last week, our L.A. affiliate reported.

According to ABC7, L.A. County sheriff’s deputies shot and killed Fuller's brother Wednesday and injured a woman during an investigation on 15th Street in Rosamond.

A source told ABC7 deputies were responding to an incident described as a spousal assault and kidnapping, sources say. They say Fuller's brother fired a weapon at deputies.

Attorney Jamon Hicks issued a statement on behalf of Fuller's family:

"This afternoon I had to notify the sisters of Robert Fuller that their half-brother Terron Jammal Boone was killed by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies in Kern County."

"At this time, until we receive all of the information, the family and their legal team doesn't have any further comment on this incident. The family respectfully asks that their privacy be respected."

According to the Kern County Sheriff's Office, KCSO deputies assisted with the initial investigation but were not involved in the actual shooting itself.
