January 14, 2019 – On Monday 1/14/19 at approximately 3:30 p.m., Yuba County Sheriff Dispatch received a 911 call regarding a physical assault taking place in the 1400 block of N Beale Rd. The caller reported a man beating another person with an unknown weapon.
Yuba County Deputies arrived on scene approximately 3 minutes later and attempted to contact a man walking from the location of the original call that matched the description of the suspect involved in the reported assault with a weapon. Moments later, deputies called out on the radio that shots had been fired. Additional Yuba County Deputies responded, as did multiple other law enforcement agencies from the region.
The suspect, an adult male, was declared deceased at the scene. His identity has not yet been confirmed. One deputy and one victim of the original assault sustained minor injuries and were treated at the scene.
The Yuba Sutter Officer Involved Shooting Investigation team responded to begin their investigation, and DOJ is responding to process the crime scene. As a matter of standard procedure, the two Yuba County Deputies involved will be placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the OIS investigation.
