Shooting Homicide Investigation in Olivehurst Commercial District
(Posted 3/28/2018)

Yuba County Sheriff Detectives are investigating a homicide that occurred at approximately 12:30pm today in the 1900 block of McGowan Parkway in Olivehurst when a suspect opened fire on a victim in a gas station parking lot. The preliminary investigation has determined that a single adult male suspect was chasing the victim, also an adult male, on foot while firing a handgun at the victim multiple times at close range. The victim was hit by gunfire but continued to run into the Dollar General store east of the gas station, followed by the suspect. The victim made his way to the back of the store and out a side door where he collapsed. The suspect remained in the store where he then shot himself. The victim was transported by ambulance to a Sacramento area hospital where he was pronounced deceased. The suspect was transported to a Marysville hospital, where he remains in critical condition. Nearby schools were placed on temporary lockdown as a precaution. McGowan Pkwy was closed from Hwy 70 to George Avenue while the crime scene was processed and was reopened at approximately 3:30pm. The investigation into the motive and events leading up to the shooting remain under investigation, as does any possible relationship between the suspect and victim. The release of the identities of the victim and shooter are pending confirmation and notification of their next of kin.
