Solano County sheriff’s deputies shot and injured a man who allegedly fired a gun at them Tuesday evening in Benicia, sheriff’s officials said. Just after 6 p.m., deputies conducted a probation check at a home in the 700 block of Primrose Lane in Benicia.
That’s where 25-year-old Benicia resident Chase Wiley allegedly armed himself with a rifle and fired at deputies, sheriff’s officials said. The deputies returned fire, striking Wiley at least once.
The deputies provided aid to Wiley, who was then taken to a hospital where he underwent surgery and is recovering this morning, sheriff’s officials said. The three deputies involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave in accordance with sheriff’s policies.
None of the deputies were injured during the shooting, sheriff’s officials said. The shooting is under investigation by the Benicia Police Department, the Solano County District Attorney’s Office and the Solano County Sheriff’s Office.
