A Bureau of Land Management ranger, a California Highway Patrol officer, and a suspect were injured Saturday during a shootout in a remote area in Nevada County, 10 miles north of Nevada City, authorities told the Sacramento Bee.

The officer was responding to the ranger's call for assistance shortly after 3 p.m. in the Tahoe National Forest when they encountered a gunman, CHP Officer Greg Tassone said.

The BLM ranger sustained a gunshot to the shoulder. The CHP officer went to a nearby hospital with a laceration to his leg. Tassone said he didn’t know whether he was wounded by gunfire or from something else.

I am glad they were close enough to each other to help each other. BLM Rangers have a very dangerous job and the CHP Officer was obviously trying to provide him with back-up in a very rural area. Most agencies that have a remote beat are watched out for by other officers working the same area. We always watched out for other agencies that were stretched thin in our area as well.
