A Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department deputy died from gunshot wounds Monday after responding to a call in Rancho Cordova. Deputy Mark Stasyuk, 27, had been with the department for four and a half years, according to Sheriff Scott Jones. Stasyuk and another deputy responded to a call for service around 1:44 p.m. from employees at the Pep Boys near Folsom Boulevard and McGregor Drive, according to Sheriff's Department spokesman Shaun Hampton. When they arrived, a suspect shot at the deputies. Stasyuk was shot in the upper body, Jones said. The second deputy -- 28-year-old Julie Robertson -- was shot in the arm. She is expected to make a full recovery, Jones said. The shooting spanned two locations, starting at Pep Boys and then spilling over to a nearby parking lot west of the store.
