YUBA CITY -- Police are investigating after a suspect exchanged gunfire with Yuba City officers during a pursuit Monday night before crashing into a home.
After the suspect crashed, he got out of the vehicle and tried to run away, police said. Officers yelled at the suspect to stop and then shots were fired by a Yuba City police officer and a Sutter County deputy.
The suspect was transported to a local hospital with gunshot wounds, police said. He was later identified by police as 35-year-old Leland Vaca, of Yuba City. Vaca is said to be in critical but stable condition.
The chase began just after 5:15 p.m. when Yuba City police officers, along with a narcotics enforcement team, were trying to find a man wanted by Sutter County Probation for violation of probation, police said.
A person matching the man's description was seen getting into a gray sedan on Almond Street. A Yuba City police car tried to stop the vehicle, but the driver did not comply and a short pursuit began, police said.
During the chase, the Vaca fired shots at officers, police said. The chase ended when the suspect vehicle veered off the road and into a home on A Street near Bennett Way.
A resident of the home suffered minor injuries, police said. They were treated by medical personnel at the scene and released.
The shooting is under investigation by the Yuba-Sutter Officer-Involved Shooting Investigation Team.
