Santa Barbara County Sheriff deputies shot a handcuffed Cayucos man who was trying to escape on Sunday night critically wounding the suspect.
Shortly before 8 p.m., deputies responding to a report of trespassing found Jeremy Leon Bordegaray, 29, inside the Carpenteria residence. During his detainment, deputies discovered a loaded handgun in Bordegaray’s backpack.
While handcuffed in the backseat of a patrol car, Bordegaray kicked out the plexiglas, crawled into the front seat which contained several loaded law enforcement firearms, and attempted to flee the scene.
One of the officers fired several shots, striking Bordegaray. The injured suspect was taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital where he is listed in critical condition.
Deputies booked Bordegaray in absentia for assault with a deadly weapon against a peace officer, being a felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of controlled substance while armed with a firearm, possession with the intent to sell methamphetamine, a parole violation, trespassing, resisting arrest and providing false information to a peace officer.
