A Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department deputy died from gunshot wounds Monday after responding to a call in Rancho Cordova.
According to KCRA-TV, Deputy Mark Stasyuk, 27, had been with the department for four and a half years, according to Sheriff Scott Jones. Stasyuk and another deputy responded to a call for service around 1:44 p.m. from employees at the Pep Boys auto shop near Folsom Boulevard and McGregor Drive, according to Sheriff's Department spokesman Shaun Hampton. When they arrived, a suspect shot at the deputies.
The officers did not know the suspect was armed when they arrived, Jones said.
Stasyuk was shot in the upper body, Jones said. The second deputy, 28-year-old Julie Robertson, was shot in the arm. She is expected to make a full recovery, Jones said.
The shooting spanned two locations, starting at Pep Boys and then spilling over to a nearby parking lot west of the store. A bystander and the suspect were also struck by gunfire. The bystander is expected to survive. The suspect was alert and talking with officers when he was taken to the hospital, Jones said.
