RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. — One Sacramento County sheriff's deputy was killed Monday and another wounded after exchanging gunfire with a suspect at an auto shop just outside of the capital city.

A man, whose identity has not yet been released, shot and killed 27-year-old Deputy Mark Stasyuk and injured Deputy Julie Robertson, said Sheriff Scott Jones. They were responding to a call about a dispute between the suspect and an employee at Pep Boys auto shop.

"It's incredibly difficult for all of us," Jones said outside the scene.

The suspect and a bystander were also shot. Jones said he did not know the suspect's specific condition but that he was alert and talking to officers. The bystander suffered non-life threatening injuries, Jones said.

The suspect fired at Stasyuk and Robertson as soon as they engaged with him, Jones said. Neither knew the suspect had a gun when they approached.

Neither deputy was wearing a body camera.

The incident shut down a busy roadway in Rancho Cordova, a city just outside of Sacramento.

A Sacramento County sheriff's deputy was killed and two others wounded last August during an investigation into a car-theft ring.

"It's an incredible hole that never quite gets filled in the hearts of our department," Jones said.

Stasyuk had been with the department for nearly five years, while Robertson has been there for two and a half.
