Shooting in Santa Rosa

A shooting in west Santa Rosa left one person dead and four Sonoma County sheriff's deputies injured in the early hours of Monday. According to sheriff's authorities, the incident began shortly after midnight when deputies responded to a report of a person wielding a rifle in unincorporated west Santa Rosa. The person fled in a vehicle when confronted by authorities, stopping at times to allegedly fire at the deputies. "Deputies returned fire, and ultimately, the suspect crashed the vehicle he was driving," the sheriff's office said in a statement. Four deputies were injured, one was shot in the leg, two suffered hand injuries, and one who sustained a head injury was hospitalized and is in critical but stable condition. The person deputies were pursuing was pronounced dead at the scene. The identity of that person was not immediately disclosed, and it was not immediately clear if the death occurred in the shooting or as a result of injuries sustained in the crash. The Santa Rosa Police Department will take over the shooting investigation, sheriff's authorities said, and body camera footage of the incident will be released in accordance with state law.
