Deputy shoots suspected burglar at coffee house 

Authorities say a suspected burglar was hospitalized with serious injuries after being shot by a Sacramento County sheriff's deputy inside a coffee shop.

The shooting occurred early Friday morning after deputies were called to assist police officers with a burglary alarm call at the "It's A Grind" coffee shop in Galt.

Sheriff's officials say the deputies spotted a man running from behind the counter. One of the deputies opened fire after the suspect allegedly refused to stop, shooting him twice.

Neither the suspect nor the deputy has been identified. Sheriff's spokesman Jason Ramos says the suspect was running towards another officer, and a deputy thought he had a hammer in his hand.

A second suspect, who also has not been identified, was arrested a short time later. He was taken to the hospital after being bitten by a police dog.
