I don’t know why everyone seems shocked by this.
It’s a fairly common event.
The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department says two deputies were shot, one fatally, Monday afternoon in Rancho Cordova.
The deputy who was shot in the upper body and later died was identified as 27-year-old Mark Stasyuk, according to Sacramento County Sheriff’s Sgt. Shaun Hampton. Stasyuk had been with the sheriff’s department for four and a half years. He died at UC Davis Medical Center.
“I can tell you that the fatal round was not in the vest,” said Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones.
According to Jones, just before 2 p.m., officers responded to the Pep Boys on Folsom Boulevard, where there was a disturbance between a customer and the business owner. Jones said the officers were expecting a “routine call” and did not know anyone would be armed when they arrived.
