Stanislaus County Man Reportedly Shoots at Deputies, Takes Own Life

A 24-year-old man is dead after allegedly shooting at deputies and then taking his own life, according to the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office.

In a Facebook post, the Sheriff’s Office identified the man as 24-year-old Aaron Osgood of Ceres.

The incident began shortly before 11 PM on November 16, when deputies attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle driving erratically in the area of Yosemite Boulevard and North Santa Cruz Avenue in Modesto.

The driver, later identified as Osgood, abandoned the vehicle on foot and fled to an adjacent business on Empire Avenue. Deputies surrounded the business and established a perimeter. A short time later, Osgood was spotted on the roof.

A drone was flown in to monitor Osgood via remote camera. Osgood was reportedly observed crawling towards the edge of the roof that was facing deputies. He then fired three shots, prompting the deputies to take cover. They did not return fire.

Osgood reportedly then shot himself.

At about 12:19 AM, law enforcement gained entry to the roof and found Osgood dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. A firearm, later determined to be stolen, was found near his right hand. The vehicle he had been driving was also discovered to have been stolen.

Osgood also had several felony arrest warrants, the Sheriff’s Office said.
