Sheriff's Department Investigating Officer Involved Shooting

  
The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department is investigating an officer involved shooting near Bradshaw Road and Highway 50.

Sergeant Shaun Hampton says deputies responded to a call of an intoxicated man in a box truck in a Carl's Jr. parking lot.

"During this contact, there was a struggle that occurred with the driver of the box truck and the deputy that was on scene," Hampton said. "During the struggle shots were fired from the deputy striking the suspect multiple times. The suspect then drove away from the scene."

Deputies arrested the man a short time later and say he was conscious and talking when admitted to a hospital.
 
They have not said whether the suspect was armed.
