A man was shot by deputies Saturday evening, after he rammed one patrol car and attempted to drive his car into another deputy.
The incident began with a hit-and-run traffic collision on Westlake Boulevard. Deputies were checking the area for the suspect vehicle, when one of them found a similar vehicle in the area of Lakeview Canyon Road and Agoura Road.
When the deputy tried to stop the vehicle, it fled through a shopping center at the northwest corner of Lakeview Canyon and Agoura. The deputy followed the suspect vehicle, which then drove eastbound on Agoura Road in the westbound traffic lanes. The suspect vehicle continued eastbound and intentionally accelerated and rammed a marked sheriff's patrol car traveling westbound on Agoura Road.
The suspect then reversed his vehicle toward the first deputy who had followed him. That deputy had exited his patrol car and was in imminent danger of being struck by the suspect's vehicle. The deputy fired several shots at the suspect. The suspect then tried to drive away, but the second deputy rammed the suspect's vehicle and pushed it into the curb to prevent the suspect from being a further danger to the public.
The suspect, who was later identified as 33-year-old Rogelio Gutierrez of Gilroy, Ca., suffered several gunshot wounds and was taken to Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center for treatment.
Anyone who was in the area and witnessed the incident is asked to contact Sgt. Ian Laughlin of the Sheriff's Major Crimes Bureau (805)383-8791 or (805)384-4737.
