SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a Sacramento County sheriff's deputy has been shot by an assailant who then carjacked two vehicles, prompting a manhunt.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Sgt. Lisa Bowman said the deputy was approaching a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot when he was shot before 11 a.m. Friday.
The deputy was taken to a hospital but his condition was not immediately known.
The shooting happened in the Arden Way area of Sacramento near a Motel 6. It prompted a massive response by special weapons teams and other heavily armed law enforcement officers.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his 30s and Bowman says he is accompanied by a woman. She says he fled to a residential area where he carjacked a vehicle, then later carjacked a second vehicle.
