Chase Involving Stolen Vehicle Ends In 2 Officer-Involved Shootings In Vacaville

VACAVILLE (CBS13) — Police say officers fired at a suspect during a chase in Vacaville early Thursday morning.

The incident started around 1:30 a.m. in San Francisco, Vacaville police say. California Highway Patrol then alerted Vacaville police that officers were chasing a stolen vehicle on Interstate 80, approaching Vacaville.

Spike strips were being laid out when the suspect exited onto Alamo Drive, prompting a chase on surface streets.

The suspect eventually drove into a residential neighborhood near Edwin Drive and Elmira Road. There, officers got out of their vehicles and opened fire when the suspect allegedly drove at them, say police.

The suspect continued on, however, and eventually drove into the county area near McCrory and Meridian roads and crashed into a drainage unit. The car then ran into a ditch, prompting the suspect to get out and run into an open field.

It was in this open field that a second officer-involved shooting happened, police say. This time, the suspect was shot. He was taken to a local hospital and is in critical but stable condition, police say.

No officers were hurt in the incident, police say.

No details about the suspect, other than he was a man, have been released.
