Hart said, "Damon showed up today to do his job, to keep this community safe, and his life was taken needlessly". "And that's a hard thing to process".

"Damon will be deeply missed by this community, by his family, and by all of his coworkers at the sheriff's office. He was a beloved figure at the sheriff's office", Hart said. He called Gutzwiller a "true hero".

Sgt. Damon Gutzwiller, 38, was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead Saturday afternoon, the department posted on Facebook.

Carrillo was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released to the custody of sheriff's deputies. He faces murder charges, along with several other felonies. Hart said that investigators are assessing whether the suspect acted alone or not.

Another deputy, whose name was not released by officials, was either shot by gunfire or "struck by shrapnel from the bomb" and struck by a vehicle as the suspect fled the property, Hart said. He is now in the hospital recovering. "He was the kind of person we all hope to be".

The suspect was tracked down by other officers and wounded in his apprehension. That officer's condition was unknown on Saturday night.

The California man who allegedly gunned down a sheriff's deputy in an ambush is an active-duty Air Force sergeant, officials said Sunday.

The gathering is scheduled to begin at 2:26 p.m., the time a call went out on police traffic that Gutzwiller had been shot. Police used a Taser to subdue Evans, who was detained and booked in Monterey County Jail on charges of assault, negligent discharge of a firearm, child endangerment, and resisting a peace officer.
