Ventura County deputy shoots driver who tried to ram him, authorities say

A Ventura County sheriff’s deputy shot the driver of a vehicle attempting to ram him in Thousand Oaks after a brief pursuit early Saturday, agency officials said.

The incident began when a deputy responded to a report of a catalytic converter theft in the 3000 block of Rollings Avenue around 5 a.m., authorities said.

The deputy chased the suspect’s vehicle, a dark gray Nissan Sentra, for a short distance before the Sentra stopped temporarily, sheriff’s officers said. The suspect then reversed the vehicle and drove straight toward the deputy, authorities said.

The deputy shot the vehicle as it fled the scene, officials said. The suspect, who was not injured in the shooting, remains at large.

The deputy was not injured in the incident, sheriff’s officials said.
