A jarring video was released Wednesday morning of a San Bernardino deputy in Victorville captured fighting with an alleged suspect. The suspect can be seen allegedly hitting and punching the deputy.

The incident occurred in the 13000 block of Cabazon Court. It's not clear who the gun belonged to.

The suspect grabs a gun as the deputy runs away and you can hear at least two shots fired. 

The deputy was not hit by gunfire but did sustain injuries. She was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said on Twitter: "13000 block of Cabazon Ct - deputy sustained non life-threatening injuries, which were not the result of gun fire. Deputy was transported to an area hospital for treatment. 15000 block of Heatherdale Rd - no deputies injured. Investigations ongoing."

Warning: explicit language

The cell phone footage, shot from above the fight by Esteebanana, shows back up police and sheriff's department officers arriving to the scene. More shots can be heard as the suspect is seen putting his arms up in the air.
