Authorities are investigating after two deputies in Sacramento and Placer counties were shot Friday in separate incidents, according to the Sacramento Bee.

An assailant shot a Sacramento County, California, sheriff’s deputy and a bystander, then carjacked two vehicles Friday morning, prompting a manhunt as the assailant fled through residential areas, sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Lisa Bowman said.

Bowman said the deputy was approaching a suspicious occupied vehicle in a parking lot when he was shot.

“The person who was inside of the vehicle shot rounds at the officer,” she said. She later said that “at least one shot was fired at our deputy, striking him at least one time.”
