About a mile up the road from me, manhunt has been going on for a few hours. Perpetrator is probably holed up in the woods somewhere (I'm in Ben Lomond, the Santa Cruz mountains) and will come out after dark. I've got a wife and three young kids at home. The sirens and helicopters have been going crazy: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.ksbw.com/amp/article/santa-cruz-county-sheriffs-office-reports-active-threat-involving-shooting/32789232

Apparently the bomb squad was called in as well; I don't really know the details. I hope that they find the perpetrator soon and that he doesn't live to have his day in court.

I'm hearing now that the deputy may have been killed by an IED. Two or more suspects seem to be holed up in a house about a mile up the road. I'm unsure if there are hostages involved :(.
Stay safe!

Hope all's well there Eric!

I would light up the house inside and out very well.

Let us know when they burn that perp!

Stay safe Brotha!

I was in Ben Lomond today, from 10:30 - 1:00.
Heard sirens, but never saw a thing.

I don't know anything about motive, but this all started when a bystander called in a suspicious van because they had seen weapons inside of it. The one suspect who was captured is Hispanic. Given the area, I would guess drug/gang related. FBI and others are involved.

I don't know. It's quiet, but parts of town and some roads are closed off, some houses were evacuated and residents can't get back home because there is an ongoing investigation. I have no idea how many other perpetrators there may be, if any. I've heard some conflicting reports of what's going on, but that's understandable.
