A search for car-theft suspects in an Auburn Boulevard Ramada Inn Wednesday turned into a violent shootout that left a veteran Sacramento County sheriff’s deputy dead and two California Highway Patrol officers wounded.
Deputy Robert French, 52, died on the way to the hospital, Sheriff Scott Jones said. He was a 21-year veteran of the department and worked as a training officer with the north area patrol unit.
“This is certainly the most difficult thing a department can go through,” Jones said. “We’ll survive this as a community. We’ve been through it before. But it is painful. It will take a period of grieving.”
