The Yolo county homeowner noticed headlights through his window, and did not go outside to confront them. They came inside. He shot them. One suspect died; one is expected to survive.

On July 20, 2021 at approximately 9 PM Yolo Sheriff Deputies responded to a residence in the 15000 block of County Road 45, north of the town of Guinda, regarding a report of a shooting that occurred at the residence. One of the callers was the homeowner, who advised the dispatcher he had shot an intruder on the property.

When Deputies arrived, they located an unresponsive male and a responsive female adult that had both sustained gunshot wounds. Deputies performed CPR on the male until paramedics arrived. The male adult did not survive his injuries. The female was transported to the hospital by an air ambulance and is expected to survive.

The homeowner who is an elderly male, remained on scene and was cooperative with investigators. It was learned that the homeowner had returned to his residence earlier that afternoon and discovered a recent burglary had occurred at his residence. Tools and a firearm were stolen during that burglary.

Several hours later the homeowner was alerted to the intruders when he saw headlights from a vehicle on his property. The homeowner was confronted by the two intruders inside the building he was staying in and the shooting occurred. The homeowner’s statements were consistent with the preliminary crime scene investigation. The homeowner did not know the deceased male and female that were shot.

In this stage of the investigation, the involved individual’s names are not being released. The deceased male and female did have extensive and recent serious criminal history.

No outstanding suspects are believed to be involved and no arrests have been made at this time. Due to this being an ongoing investigation, this is all of the information that will be released at this time. At the completion of this investigation, investigators will forward their findings to the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office for review.

It’s unknown the actual age of the Yolo county homeowner. The older we get the less we take to being called “elderly.” Especially when, like this gentleman, we can still shoot straight under pressure. There has been a spate of home invasions over the last few weeks in this area of California. You can about more of them at Law Enforcement Today.
