Man in Kingsbury shooting wanted for Bay Area murders
A man wanted in the Bay Area for the shooting deaths of two residents was arrested in Douglas County late Friday night.
Stefon Jefferson was arrested by Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies after a chase that resulted in a sergeant being shot.
The black Toyota Jefferson was driving was spotted in South Lake Tahoe around 9:45 p.m. Friday night.
Officers chased the Toyota into Nevada, where Douglas County sheriff’s deputies took up the pursuit.
At some point Jefferson fired on deputies hitting a sheriff’s sergeant, who received nonlife-threatening injuries.
The sergeant is at Renown Regional Medical Center for surgery.
Jefferson sped over Daggett Summit and down the Valley side, and then crashed about a mile up from Foothill Road.
Kingsbury was still closed on Saturday morning.
According to NBC Bay Area, San Francisco Police say Jefferson was wanted in the shooting of his cousin Marcus Jackson on Friday and another man in San Francisco’s Bayview District.
The station is reporting that Jefferson had a list of people he wanted to kill.
Jefferson may also be linked to the shooting death of a man in People’s Park in Berkeley on Friday afternoon, according to the station.
