2 CHP officers injured, 1 sheriff's deputy killed in Sacramento County

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Police say no other suspects have been found in a California hotel where a sheriff's deputy was shot and killed and two CHP officers were wounded.

The determination came after an hours-long search Wednesday of the Sacramento hotel where police believe a stolen vehicle ring was operating.

Police say they learned while apprehending two women suspects that one had a room at the hotel.

Officials say the shooting began when officers returned to the room and knocked on the door to investigate.

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones says 52-year-old Deputy Robert French died on his way to a hospital.

French served in the Sheriff's Department for 21 years.
