Officer Involved Shooting in Oregon House
(Posted 12/13/2018)

The Yuba County Sheriff’s Department, as part of the Yuba Sutter SWAT Team, is actively investigating an officer involved shooting that occurred just before noon today in Oregon House. The incident began at approximately 8:12 a.m. with a 911 call from a victim reporting his neighbor had come to his house and made verbal threats to kill him, and then fired a gun at the victim’s residence in the 14000 block of Vavassuer Way in Oregon House before running into the woods nearby. A second 911 call at 8:19 am. from another citizen in the area also reported hearing gunfire and a man yelling from the woods. Initial officers arriving to the scene could also hear a man continuing to yell from the woods near the victim’s residence and heard another shot fired. Due to the nature of the threats by a suspect who was believed to be armed and in a heavily wooded environment, the Yuba Sutter SWAT team was activated to respond along with a CHP Helicopter to search from the air. A perimeter was established in the area while Yuba County Deputies obtained a search warrant for the suspect’s property and residence. Just before noon, SWAT officers began approaching the residence to serve the search warrant, when the suspect emerged from the residence and fired at SWAT team members. Several officers from the team returned gunfire. The suspect was declared dead at the scene. Official cause of death will be determined by autopsy. The Yuba Sutter Officer Involved Shooting Team comprised of investigators from the Sutter County and Yuba County District Attorney’s Offices is conducting an investigation into the shooting. California DOJ was called to the scene to assist. As a matter of standard procedure, officers involved in the shooting will be placed on paid administrative leave pending the results of a parallel internal OIS investigation. The decedent’s name is being withheld pending official notification of next of kin. The Yuba Sutter Regional Swat team includes officers from the Yuba County Sheriff’s Department, the Yuba City Police Department, and the Marysville Police Department.
