Sutter County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a residence in the 1500 block of Oro Grande, Yuba City after receiving a call from a male subject who claimed to have been shot by his wife. The call was received shortly before 7 A.M. this morning. The line was disconnected and attempts to reconnect to the residence were not successful. The deputies secured the surrounding area and continued attempts to make telephone contact with those inside the residence. The Sutter County Sheriff's Special Enforcement Detail and Hostage Negotiators responded. Attempts continued to establish contact with individuals in the residence but were unsuccessful.

SED personnel made a successful forced entry into the residence, in a controlled rescue operation, locating a female subject who was subsequently detained. A further search found a male subject suffering what appeared to be a bullet wound to the back. No names are being released at this time but the individuals are believed to be husband and wife. Sheriff's Detectives are continuing the investigation into the shooting. No arrests have been made at this time. No other persons were injured in the incident. The injured male was transported to Rideout Emergency Hospital for treatment. No update on his condition is available from the Sheriff's Department.
