RENO, Nev. -- The suspect in last week's officer involved shooting in rural California has been arrested. Sierra County sheriff's officials say 33-year-old Adam A. Malik, of San Diego and Davis, was officially taken into custody Saturday, July 7th, a week after being shot by a deputy.

Sheriff's investigators have also released more information about the night Malik was shot. They say that in the incident which started the chase, Malik not only pulled out a weapon but attempted to back over a sheriff's deputy and rammed a patrol vehicle. That happened in the town of North San Juan.

Minutes later near Downieville, Malik's vehicle was spotted and a deputy attempted to make a traffic stop. That is when the high-speed chase began. Investigators say it ended when Malik stopped, pulled out his weapon and the deputy shot him.

Malik had been in a hospital recovering and watched closely by deputies until his arrest. No deputies were injured during the original incident, the chase or the shooting.
