MARYSVILLE — Highway 70 in Marysville is closed in both directions after a deadly officer-involved shooting in the area.

Yuba County Sheriff says the shooting happened around 2:30 a.m., after officers pulled over a man suspected of driving under the influence in Wheatland.

Investigators say the man sped off after giving the officer his ID. Officers chased the man to Marysville, finally getting him to stop by using spike strips.

When the man refused to get out of the car, a Yuba County Sheriff’s K-9 was used to try to get him out. Officers say the man shot the dog in the neck.

Three deputies with the Yuba County Sheriff’s Office and one Marysville Police Officer returned fire, killing the man.

All four officers have been placed on administrative leave.

Caltrans says southbound at 9th and northbound at 5th are closed to traffic.

Detours through town have been set up but delays should be expected.

They expect the roads to be back open around noon.

The K-9, named Glock, is at home and resting, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
