Two Yuba County Deputies Shot in Oregon House

UPDATED 5PM

The manhunt is over for a suspect who shot two Yuba County Sheriff’s deputies this morning, and the suspect has been killed. Authorities first got a call of a man who was agitated in the nine thousand block of Marysville Road near Oregon House just before 9 o’clock this morning. The man had reportedly been pulling up marijuana plants from a Rastafarian Church when deputies were called. In a news conference still going on, Yuba County Sheriff Steve Durfor says there was an exchange of gunfire, and the suspect died at the scene…

Durfor says it is possible that the suspect killed himself, but Durfor doesn’t believe that was the case. Two deputies were wounded, and Durfor says both required surgery at Sutter Roseville Hospital…
