Yuba County Shootout Latest

OREGON HOUSE, Calif. (AP) — A Yuba County sheriff's deputy ran alone into a house twice to pull two wounded colleagues to safety.
The chase began Tuesday at a Rastafarian church's marijuana farm in Oregon House and ended with a shootout and the suspect dead. The wounded deputies are expected to survive.
Yuba County Sheriff Steve Durfor says the third deputy did not see the suspect or hear any gunfire after putting in an officers-down call and entering the house. A SWAT team later found the suspect dead.
Durfor says it's likely the man died from the deputies' gunfire, but it's possible his wounds were self-inflicted.
The man was a new worker at the farm and was ripping up plants and wielding a gun, which prompted the head of the church to call authorities.
