TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - The Tehama County Sheriff’s Office says the suspect involved in a deputy-involved shooting on Saturday died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

According to TCSO, authorities conducted an autopsy of Jose Alfredo Barajas, 29, of Stockton, and found that he shot himself in the head.

There were also several wounds that indicated his involvement with the shooting at the Dollar General in Los Molinos.

This all happened after a deputy from Tehama County contacted Barajas at the store parking lot and began to exchange gunfire.

Barajas shortly went on a run from authorities where he stopped at northbound Interstate 5 near Red Bluff, where authorities found him dead.

The deputy and the female passenger of his car are expected to make a full recovery.
