NEVADA CITY, Calif. (AP) — A Bureau of Land Management ranger, a California Highway Patrol officer and a suspect were injured Saturday in a shootout near a Northern California campground, authorities said.
The officer was responding to the ranger's call for assistance in rugged Tahoe National Forest when they encountered a gunman, CHP Officer Greg Tassone said.
A shootout ensued, and the ranger and the suspect were both struck by gunfire, Tassone said. Both were flown to a suburban Sacramento hospital for treatment.
BLM spokeswoman Dana Wilson said she doesn't know the extent of the ranger's injuries, or what led the ranger to call local authorities for assistance. There was also no word on how seriously the suspect was hurt.
The CHP officer suffered minor injuries. Tassone says he didn't know whether he was wounded by gunfire or from something else.
The shooting occurred in a remote area about 10 miles north of Nevada City.
The circumstances surrounding the shootout were under investigation.
