Officer shoots, kills man after dragged by vehicle in Yuba County, CHP says

A California Highway Patrol officer shot and killed a man in Yuba County on Tuesday after he was caught in the driver’s vehicle and dragged away, according to the CHP. The shooting happened in the Linda community on Dunning Avenue near Hammonton Smartsville after an officer contacted a driver whose vehicle matched the description of a stolen vehicle, the Yuba-Sutter section of the CHP said. During the contact, the police officer was caught in the door of the driver’s vehicle and dragged away. The officer then fired his service weapon, the CHP said. The driver later crashed into a fence. Police tried to save his life, but the man was pronounced dead. KCRA 3 Orko Manna spoke to a woman who said she was the mother of the man who was shot and killed and identified him as 34-year-old Ronald Trapp. She said her son’s life was troubled, but that he did not deserve to die. “A lot of bad things have happened to him in recent years, but before that, he tried to be tough, but he really had a soft heart,” said Carrie Trapp. The CHP confirmed to KCRA 3 that the officer involved in the shooting had been released from hospital. The shooting took place right next to Linda Elementary School. The Marysville Joint Consolidated School District told KCRA 3 that school staff were notified of the incident around 9:30 p.m. The school then immediately went into lockdown and a message was sent to the parents. KCRA 3 spoke with parents picking up their children from school on Tuesday afternoon, who are shocked that it happened so close to the building. “I just got here and saw a whole bunch of cops, so I almost had a heart attack, you know, because I have three kids here,” said Tee Xiong, a parent.
