Aerial video showed at least one person was airlifted to the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital for treatment.

The shooter was still at large as of 11:30 a.m., Sanchez said.

Investigators had set up a perimeter and were searching for a male in a white vehicle, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Nichols.

At a burning home in Acton, about 10 miles away from the fire station, there was a large law enforcement presence, but it wasn’t immediately clear if the two scenes were related.

No further details were immediately available.
