“On Thursday, August 11, 2022, deputies from the Sheriff’s Specialized Enforcement Division (SED) assisted the Los Angeles Police Department in the apprehension of a murder suspect, identified as Byron Hayes, in the 12600 block of Westway Lane in Victorville.

Deputies arrived at the location and Hayes barricaded himself inside the home. After over 30 minutes of negotiations, Hayes pointed a handgun at deputies. Deputies fired rounds at Hayes, and he was struck. When Hayes retreated inside the home, deputies forced entry into the home and rendered medical aid. Hayes was transported to a hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

The Sheriff’s Specialized Investigations Division responded and is conducting the LFE investigation. This investigation is ongoing and no other information is available for release.

The Los Angeles Police Department is conducting the murder investigation. Please refer your questions regarding that case to LAPD.
