California officer, Bureau of Land Management ranger hurt in shootout near campground

Authorities say a federal ranger and a California Highway Patrol officer have been injured in a shooting near a Northern California campground.

CHP Officer Greg Tassone says the shooting broke out Saturday afternoon in a rugged, remote area north of Nevada City.

He says a CHP officer was responding to a call for assistance from a U.S. Bureau of Land Management ranger when they encountered a gunman. A shootout ensued, and the ranger and the suspect were both struck by gunfire.

Both were flown to a suburban Sacramento hospital for treatment. BLM spokeswoman Dana Wilson says she doesn't know the extent of the ranger's injuries.

The CHP officer suffered minor injuries. Tassone says he didn't know whether he was wounded by gunfire or from something else.
