The CHP shot a man in the Arden Arcade area last night. Sacramento Sheriff's Spokeswoman Lisa Bowman says it happened around 11:30 near Howe Avenue and Arden Way,

"Their officers were investigating a stolen vehicle complaint," said Bowman.

They were checking a truck in a parking lot when a man allegedly approached them with an assault rifle.  He wouldn't put it down, and raised it at one point,

"The CHP officer fired several rounds at him, striking him and shooting him.  He is currently in critical but stable condition," she explained.

The officers themselves were not injured.
