The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office said it is investigating after officers fired at a woman in Rancho Cordova on Monday.

It all started on Augibi Way when the sheriff’s office said a person called that someone was trying to break into their home with a butcher knife. Officers with the Rancho Cordova Police Department spotted the person suspected of breaking in parked in a driveway along Malaga Way, just around the corner.

Shortly afterward, the sheriff’s office said two officers fired their guns at the woman, but it has not been clarified yet if she was actually hit.

The woman then drove away, prompting a short chase, the sheriff’s office said. The pursuit ended in front of the Sacramento Regional Transit light rail station by Folsom Boulevard and Mather Field Road.

Deputies said the woman eventually surrendered.

A security guard who witnessed the end of the chase told KCRA 3 that several officers surrounded the car with guns drawn. When the woman got out of her car, the guard said he noticed a wound and bleeding on the woman’s arm.

“It was quick,” Melli Fluours Lyuda, a security guard at the light rail station said. “It happened so fast.”
