YUBA COUNTY, Calif. – The Yuba County Sheriff’s Department announced the arrest of an 18-year-old and a 16-year-old following an attempted murder during a robbery.

Deputies arrived at the scene and located a shooting victim on the sidewalk, with life-threatening injuries. The victim, a 23-year-old Olivehurst man, was transported to Adventist Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery. Deputies say he remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Multiple witnesses at the scene described the incident to the sheriff’s office as an altercation appearing to be a robbery attempt of the victim, who was operating a food-vending cart in front of an apartment complex.

Two male suspects were reported to have struggled with the victim prior to the victim being shot, and then running away from the scene. The suspects were described as black males in their teens to early 20s.
