(Jake Hutchison/Enterprise-Record) CHICO — A 41-year-old man believed by law enforcement to have been involved in a domestic violence incident was shot by a Chico police officer and Butte County sheriff’s deputy during a confrontation off Hegan Lane early Monday morning. The suspect was identified as Jason Anthony Sampson, 41, of Chico. According to a press release issued Monday by the Chico Police Department, the shooting left Sampson — who police say had a handgun — in the hospital. He is expected to survive. The release said the suspect was being pursued by police after the alleged domestic violence incident, but the pursuit was eventually called off. The man’s vehicle was stopped after a spike strip was deployed. The driver allegedly ran away from the car but eventually was able to enter an unlocked police car. The release said officers noticed the suspect had a handgun and, in a confrontation, an officer and deputy both fired their guns at the suspect. Medical aid was immediately rendered awaiting an ambulance’s arrival,” the release said. “The man was transported to a local hospital. The officer and deputy did not sustain injuries. District Attorney Mike Ramsey said the event began around 2:45 a.m. Monday. The roadway was eventually opened at around 3:30 p.m. Monday. The suspect did not fire any shots, Ramsey said. After the incident, Sampson was taken to Enloe Medical Center for surgery. Calkins said it was likely that the suspect will survive. The release said that the officer-involved shooting protocol is underway and both the officer and deputy are on administrative leave.
