The bystander who suffered non-life-threatening injuries during the fatal shooting Monday of a Sacramento County sheriff’s deputy was an employee of the Pep Boys store at which the incident took place, the auto retail company and sheriff’s officials confirmed Wednesday.
An employee at the Rancho Cordova location on Folsom Boulevard was injured in the same incident that killed Deputy Mark Stasyuk and injured Deputy Julie Robertson, Pep Boys spokeswoman Arianna Stefanoni Sherlock confirmed in a written statement.
Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Shaun Hampton confirmed the injured bystander was a male employee of the store.
Robertson and the employee, who has not been further identified, were both released from the hospital Tuesday afternoon. The employee was shot in the back, the Sheriff’s Department reported. Both are expected to recover, authorities said.

The suspect taken into custody following Monday’s shooting was identified by the Sheriff’s Department as Anton Lemon Moore, 38, of Rancho Cordova. Moore is a local rapper/producer who goes by the name “Mista Flow.”
One music video, featuring Moore rapping in a Sacramento Kings jersey, can be found on the Mista Flow YouTube channel. In it, Moore can be seen rapping at a tire store in Rancho Cordova also on Folsom Boulevard, just 2 1/2 miles away from Pep Boys.
