Man shot by deputy after traffic stop in San Clemente
A man was in the hospital Tuesday after being shot by an Orange County deputy in San Clemente, authorities said.
Sheriff's deputies made what began as a routine traffic stop at 4:45 a.m. near San Clemente High School, sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino said.
The driver pulled his car into the school parking lot at 700 Avenida Pico, and the shooting occurred soon after. Few details were available.
"What led up to it, I don't know," Amormino said.
The original violation that prompted the traffic stop also was unknown.
San Clemente High was operating normally Tuesday, Amormino said.
The shooting is being investigated by the Orange County district attorney's office.
