Man With Assault Rifle Killed In Officer Involved Shooting

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Deputies shot and killed a man who allegedly opened fire at law enforcement with an assault rifle Sunday night in the Arden-Arcade area.

A Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputy responded to a disturbance call near Whitney Avenue and Morrow Street at about 9:30 p.m. and was confronted by a man who was brandishing an assault rifle.

The suspect allegedly opened fire, forcing the deputy to retreat and call for backup, authorities said.

A second deputy arrived on scene a short time later and was also fired upon by the suspect. Both deputies returned fire, fatally wounding the alleged gunman.

Neither deputy was seriously hurt in the exchange.

A motive for the incident and the identity of the suspect have not been released.

    Bill was an amazing person And did not deserve that he didn’t kill anyone that day and trust me he could of he was a great shot… He would have given you the shirt of his back if you needed it.. I loved him and respect him very much… Bill rest in peace my friend. We will miss you and you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Love you very much

    My thoughts and prayers to the family and friends left behind. This man was a veteran who suffered from depression, a mental illness. I feel very sad that so many fellow sacramentans have no compassion.
