A burglary suspect remained in a Roseville hospital Monday after being shot Sunday by an off-duty sheriff's deputy who had intercepted the man as he was being chased by Rocklin police.
Sergey Pautov, 22, of Rancho Cordova was listed in fair condition Monday, according to the Roseville Police Department, which is investigating the incident.
The burglary suspect was admitted to Sutter Roseville Medical Center after the shooting.
Rockin police said he will be arrested on suspicion of felony burglary, reckless evading and possession of a stolen vehicle.
The incident began about 4:30 p.m. Sunday when Rocklin police were alerted to a burglary at an AM/PM market at 6550 Fairway Drive. A clerk said a man walked in and stole an undisclosed number of lottery tickets, then drove off in a Honda Civic.
A Rocklin police officer later spotted the car on Sunset Boulevard and discovered it stolen, police said. The Honda driver fled on Sunset with the officer giving chase, setting off a three-mile pursuit before the officer lost sight of the vehicle.
Witnesses said they saw the driver head into a parking lot at Sutter Roseville Medical Center. About 4:50 p.m., residents saw a man that police believed to be the alleged burglar scaling fences in the Stone Canyon Drive area of Roseville.
An off-duty Placer County sheriff's deputy monitoring radio traffic spotted the man, confronted him and opened fire. Neither Rocklin nor Roseville police would identify the deputy.
Roseville police said the deputy found and shot the suspect at Cambria Park, 1910 Taylor Road, about 4:55 p.m.
Witnesses are asked to contact the Rocklin Police Department at (916) 625-5400.
