Multiple suspects opened fire on deputies when they responded to call about a theft from a marijuana garden in Somerset.

Somerset, CA – An El Dorado County sheriff’s deputy was fatally shot and an off-duty San Joaquin County sheriff’s deputy was wounded when they responded to a report of a theft from a marijuana garden on Wednesday morning.

The shootings occurred when El Dorado County Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Ishmael responded to a the call about the marijuana theft from a private home in the area of Sand Ridge Road and Mt. Aukum Road in the rural community of Somerset, the Los Angeles Times reported.

El Dorado County Sheriff John D’Agostini told reporters at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon that Deputy Ishmael was accompanied by an off-duty deputy from San Joaquin County who was doing a ride-along when the shooting began.

Sheriff D’Agostini said the suspects “immediately” opened fire on the deputies as soon as they arrived on the scene.

The sheriff said the off-duty deputy “returned fire and “did his best to save Brian,” and was wounded by gunfire in the process.

Radio traffic during the gun battle reflected the desperation of the situation, KOVR reported.

“We have an officer down and we can’t get him out…” one deputy reported.

“…officer down, I need additional people up here by the pool,” another deputy told dispatch.

Deputy Ishmael was fatally wounded by the gunfire.

The San Joaquin County deputy was ultimately transported to the hospital, where he underwent surgery, the Los Angeles Times reported.

He is expected to recover.

Sheriff D’Agostini said two Hispanic men had been taken into custody at the scene.

One of them was wounded in the gun battle and remains hospitalized, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The sheriff warned that the scene remained active because authorities weren’t sure if they had arrested everybody yet.

Well, here you have it! Even after legalization in the looney state of CA, we still have officers being murdered because of it... RIP Deputy Ishmael
