Bringolf says MacDuff was transported to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital to be checked for non-serious injuries before he was taken into custody. He says a female passenger was released with no charges. The Sheriff’s Department says MacDuff shot a man on Sweetland Road, on January third, and fled on foot, after a stolen vehicle he was occupying crashed into a nearby hillside. A female occupant of the stolen vehicle and her dog received minor injuries from the altercation. Those injuries may have been the result of a rock thrown by the gunshot victim. The reason for the altercation and motive for the attack have not been released.
