At around 10:30 p.m. Sunday night, deputies from the Placer County Sheriff’s Office apprehended a Colfax man who rammed one deputy’s car, slightly injuring the deputy, before the suspect was shot.
The suspect, Ryan Presson, 25, sustained a wound to his forearm and a grazing wound to his head. He’s being treated at SRMC and is expected to be released later today to the Placer County Jail in Auburn.
A deputy initially saw a stolen car parked at the AM/PM on Lincoln Way in Auburn. When a man walked out of the store and got into the stolen vehicle, two deputies drove up and boxed Presson in. Presson rammed the deputy’s car as the deputy was standing next to it, knocking the vehicle several feet and knocking the deputy to the ground. He was slightly injured.
Deputies fired at Presson, who was able to drive out of the parking lot, onto Lincoln Way, before crashing into a curb at Ferguson Road. He ran across Lincoln Way and hid in the bushes at Starbucks.
A CHP aircraft overhead spotted him immediately and CHP officers held him at gunpoint until deputies arrived and took him into custody.
