SISKIYOU COUNTY, Calif. - The Siskiyou County Sheriff's is investigating an officer-involved shooting that left the suspect injured and in the hospital on November 5, northwest of the city of Mount Shasta.

Officials say the initial call was from 19-year-old Jesse Macias' father saying Macias was "acting strangely" and was armed with two large knives.

When officers arrived to the Douglas Lane home, officials say Macias was seen standing in the roadway with the two large knives. Officers then tried to speak with Macias and calm the situation.

Officials say this is when the officer-involved shooting occurred, involving both the sergeant and deputy.

Macias was injured by the gunfire and was taken to Mercy Medical Center for treatment, officials say. The deputy, sergeant, and Mount Shasta officer who responded were all uninjured.

The Siskiyou County Interagency Critical Incident Investigation Team was called in to begin an investigation now lead by the Yreka Police Department with assistance from the District Attorney's Office Bureau of Investigation and the Weed and Etna Police Departments.

Officials say per routine, the sheriff's Major Crimes Unit will be investigating the officers involved to determine if policies and procedures were followed. This places the deputy and sergeant involved on administrative leave.

Macias faces various felony charges related to crimes committed against a separate crime victim and the involved sergeant and deputy.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Yreka Police at (530) 841-2300, or the sheriff's 24-hour Dispatch number of (530) 841-2900.
