Shots Fired After A Vehicle Collision. Multiple Charges For Rail Road Flat Woman

Mountain Ranch, CA...On March 27th at approximately 10:40am Calaveras Sheriff;s Deputies responded to assist CHP Officers with a single vehicle collision in Mountain Ranch on Wharregard Road. Deputies and Officers found a pickup truck on its side off of the roadway. The driver of the vehicle was not at the scene. They also noticed blood at the scene. During the investigation they learned that the driver was possible at a residence near the 2600 block of Rail Road Flat Road. The deputies and CHP Officer responded to the residence to conduct a welfare check on the female driver, identified as 31 year old Satshabad Khalsa of Rail Road Flat.


Upon arrival the deputies and CHP Officer heard yelling coming from a small, one room cabin on the property. They responded to the disturbance and located Khalsa inside the cabin. As they approached the front door two adult female witnesses inside told the deputies that Khalsa had a knife. As the deputies and CHP Officer got closer they observed a struggle between Khalsa and the witnesses, who were trying to remove the knife from Khalsa.

Prior to the arrival of the deputies the witnesses were reportedly in a struggle to regain control of a two year old child that Khalsa was allegedly trying to forcibly remove from one of the witnesses arms. Fearing for the safety of the witnesses, a deputy deployed a Taser in an attempt to subdue Khalsa, but the taser had little effect on her.

Khalsa then charged at the deputies with the knife in her hand. The two deputies, fearing that they were going to be stabbed, each fired one shot from their duty handguns. Khalso threw the knife and fell to the ground inside the cabin and was immediately taken into custody. Neither Khalsa nor the responding deputies and CHP Officer were injured.

Arrestee Khalsa was transported to Mark Twain Medical Center where she was medically cleared. She was later booked into the Calaveras County Jail on charges of Assault with a Deadly Weapon, not a firearm, on a peace officer, False Imprisonment, Obstructing a Peace Officer, Child Cruelty and Assault with a Deadly Weapon, not a firearm.

The two deputies were placed on three days administrative leave per policy and standard operating procedure following an officer involved shooting. This incident is still under investigation. No further information is available at this time.

    Are you kidding me? Some retard mountain ranch hippy rolling around with a knife and the officers DONT shoot her and you complain about police brutality.

    Ive carried a gun for employment, and those officers acted better than I would have.

    You should be thankful your idiot pot growing cousin didn't get smoked where she stood.

How do you fire at least twice into a one room cabin and not hit the target?

Back to the qualifying range deputy dogs. A little less mota and a little more fine motor control.

    That was my first thought as well. Were they only trying to scare her and not hit her? Otherwise, they need to qualify again and show they actually can come reasonable close to hitting a target

      Peace officers are trained to shoot to kill, if you have to fire your side arm, it's intended to be lethal force. There is no longer such a thing as a warning shot or shoot them in the leg.

    They need 3 days at the pistol range rather than administrative leave.

    On the other hand, they didn't shoot the child and they both had enough self-control not to empty their magazines into the woman and cabin. In that sense, they did better than many big city cops.

      If you are forced to pull, go to work, hit your target or you have failed miserably...

    I agree with with this post because seems like around this county-thanks to social media. Everyone to quick to pointing finger. Who does who wrong. That area of the county is a mess we know and feel the impact. The whole story is not out. To easy to say shoot to kill. That is still a human. And officers trained to start from hip or zipper work up, was maybe judgement. Was the 2 year old child around. Do we know. This comment section is like playing poker with my brothers kids. As always people on here looking for confrontation.
