    Deputies with the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office shot and killed a man they said opened fire on them in an evacuation zone of the Lava fire, authorities said. Siskiyou County Sheriff Jeremiah LaRue told the Sacramento Bee that officers tried to prevent the man from driving into the Mount Shasta Vista subdivision on Highway 97 north of Weed after it had been evacuated from the fire Monday evening. The subdivision is home to a large complex of cannabis farms run primarily by Hmong families. “They made contact with the driver. And at some point, the driver exhibited a firearm, a handgun, and pointed it at the officers,” LaRue told the Bee. A neighbor said he heard dozens of rounds fired in rapid succession over about 30 seconds. LaRue did not immediately respond to requests for comment Tuesday. The shooting occurred against a backdrop of tension between the Sheriff’s Office and the growers, including claims of racial persecution and corruption that have been been linked to the sheriff’s enforcement efforts. Siskiyou County in recent years banned or...

    Two deputies who failed to adequately respond to the massacre at Marjory Stoneman High School three years ago in Parkland, Florida, should get their jobs back, according to a judge. The ruling has nothing to do with their conduct that day, however, and instead relates to a clerical error and the timing of their dismissals. Brian Miller and Joshua Stambaugh were fired in the aftermath of the Valentine's Day shooting in 2018, which left 17 people dead. Sergeant Miller, the first supervisor to arrive on scene, stood outside of the school and hid behind a car for 10 minutes while the massacre was taking place, while Stambaugh, who was off-duty at the time, observed the massacre from a nearby highway. He initially drove to the school upon the call of shots fired before hiding behind his truck for five minutes, then retreating to the highway.  Broward Circuit Judge Keathan Frink ruled Thursday to uphold the deputies' previous reinstatements, saying they are entitled to get their jobs back, as well as back pay and other pay for accrued sick time, vacation...
