“At approximately 1:17 P.M. on Wednesday, February 1, 2023, Rancho Cordova Police Officers responded to a residence on Ramsgate Way in the City of Rancho Cordova. A caller reported a male subject stabbed the victim and ran her over with a vehicle. When officers arrived, they discovered an 18-year-old female suffering from multiple stab wounds and requested the fire department respond to assist. The Sacramento Metro Fire District arrived moments later and began to render medical aid. Unfortunately, the victim succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Homicide Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators responded to the scene a short time later, interviewed witnesses, and gathered evidence. Based on their investigation, homicide detectives identified the suspect as 22-year-old Devian LEWIS.

Detectives began a search for LEWIS and discovered the California Highway Patrol (CHP) was in a vehicle pursuit with LEWIS on Interstate 80 near Dixon. Sheriff units joined CHP as the pursuit continued through Sacramento southbound on Highway 99. During the pursuit, deputies learned LEWIS was armed. LEWIS exited westbound on Cosumnes River Boulevard and eventually made his way into Elk Grove when the Elk Grove Police Department joined in to assist as well.

The pursuit came to an end in the City of Elk Grove, where an officer involved shooting took place during his apprehension. LEWIS was transported to a local hospital, where he currently remains until he is medically cleared.

The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office is the primary investigating agency for the homicide which occurred in Rancho Cordova. The Elk Grove Police Department and the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office will be investigating the officer-involved shooting, as it occurred within the city limits of Elk Grove.”
