Ois A man shot by a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy in Cudahy after he hid behind a car and refused to cooperate was seemingly unarmed, officials said Friday.

Sheriff’s officials said the parolee had an outstanding narcotics warrant, but no weapon was found at the scene. He was listed in stable condition at a hospital.

Deputies from the East Los Angeles sheriff's station saw the man acting suspiciously shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday in the 3700 block of Live Oak Street.

The man tried to hide behind a car, and a shooting ensued when deputies made contact with him, authorities said.

He was booked on a parole violation and a narcotics-related warrant, authorities said.
