    Sheriff's officials confirm SWAT deputies have been involved a shooting in the area where they've been looking for the person who shot and killed a 64-year-old man in a cabin in Jawbone Canyon. The suspect could also be involved in the kidnapping of three men near that area earlier this week.

    This is a developing story. We will update the story as more information becomes available.

    Two Kern County sheriff’s deputies were wounded Saturday night – one seriously, but expected to recover – after a gunfight in the rugged mountains east of Bakersfield, the sheriff’s department reported Sunday. The man they were trying to arrest escaped.

    A posse of law enforcement officers from throughout Kern County closed several communities in the mountains east of Bakersfield Sunday as they searched for a man believed to have killed a resident and wounded two deputies.

    Some residents in the Weldon and Kelso Valley areas, southeast of Lake Isabella, were told to lock their doors and stay inside until the killer could be apprehended. 

    The deputies were hit by bullets from a large-caliber handgun, a spokesman said, during a fire fight with the suspect Saturday at about 8:30 p.m. in a remote ranch near Kelso Valley Road and Jawbone Canyon Road.

    The wounded deputy was Michael Booker, a 40-year-old member of the SWAT team, Sheriff Donny Youngblood said. Deputy Jose Perez was injured as he pulled the wounded Booker to safety, the sheriff said.

    The two were part of a team search outbuildings at the remote ranch when they came under fire, Youngblood said.

    Booker was struck in the shoulder; the bullet traveled down his arm, Youngblood said. A second bullet hit Booker in the wrist, he said.  Perez was grazed by a bullet that injured his ear. It was a very near miss, the sheriff said, but Perez immediately returned to the search.

    The deputies fired at the killer, but it wasn’t immediately known if he was hit. He escaped into the night.

    Booker was airlifted to Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster where his wife is at his side, Youngblood said.

    The killer is considered heavily armed and dangerous. Anyone with information was asked call asked to call the Sheriff’s Office immediately --   9-1-1 in an emergency, or  661-861-3110 or 1-800-861-3110.

    He was described as a white male, 30-35 years old, 5-foot-8, 160 pounds with long brown hair, blue eyes, dirty in appearance wearing an olive colored t-shirt, olive colored pants, a brown corduroy hat, and a green bandana.

    On Saturday, the coroner identified the man killed in cabin in the area as David Louis Markieitz, 64, whose relatives said had retired to the mountains after retiring from his Tehachapi dental practice. Family said they became concerned when they couldn’t reach him Thursday, so they drove to his cabin in the 8600 block of Jawbone Canyon Road. There, just before midnight Thursday, they found his body, the apparent victim of a gunshot wound. 

    At least 60 officers and support personnel were part the search, which is concentrated in a triangular area between Bakersfield and Tehachapi and Lake Isabella.

    The Kern County Sheriff’s and Bakersfield Police SWAT teams, rotating shifts in temperatures that approached 100 degrees over the weekend, led the search, going building to building along dirt roads. A SWAT team from Ridgecrest also was assisting.

    Officers from the U.S. Forest Service, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the California State Parks Police were on scene.

    Two Kern sheriff’s helicopters led the search from the air, joined by a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department chopper. A Hall Ambulance ‘copter was parked in the area in case it was needed. 

    Ridgecrest and California City police departments brought in armored tactical vehicles. The Orange County Sheriff’s Department provided night-vision equipment. The Red Cross was providing support, including cots, food, water and portable bathrooms.

    It was all taking place in an area that includes some of Kern’s most remote terrain. It is hundreds of square miles of forests, dotted with abandoned gold mines, dirt roads and smaller trails, and campsites. It is an area popular with deer and bear hunters.

    There are hundreds of cabins in the area, some occupied year round, and some occupied only seasonally.

    That’s where, sheriff’s deputies said, everything began Tuesday at about 7 p.m.

    That’s when three young men went to a cabin one of them owned about 15 miles southeast of Twin Oaks, in the rugged hills between Bakersfield and Tehachapi.  At the cabin, deputies said, they encountered a man who apparently had been living there without permission.

    The man held them hostage for 90 minutes. He escaped on the ATV on which the men arrived, deputies said.

    Deputies began an immediate search. The stolen ATV was located about two miles northwest of the cabin. Several guns stolen from the cabin were located with the ATV, but the shotgun used by the man was not located, deputies said.

    A search of the area continued Wednesday and Thursday. It intensified and shifted 10-20 miles to the north, along Jawbone Canyon Road and Kelso Valley Road, where Saturday night’s shootout with deputies took place.

  • Update as of 11 p.m. Sunday:

    Just after 6:30 p.m., incident command decided to pull a majority of ground personnel, including the SWAT units, snipers and bomb squad.

    Perez and Booker were part of a posse hunting a killer who remains at large, according to KCSO

    Residents are advised to lock their doors and stay inside in the Weldon area, north of Twin Oaks and Jawbone Canyon.

    People who live in the area are changing their daily routines to stay safe. Some have formed an impromptu neighborhood watch to keep an eye on each other.

    Many others are keeping a firearm close at hand until the suspect is caught.

    Three schools have been closed indefinitely as deputies conduct the manhunt.

    Piute Mountain Elementary is in the Caliente Union School District.

    That district started back to school Monday, July 27.

    So those kids are out indefinitely.

    South Fork Elementary and South Fork Middle School are in the South Fork Union District.

    That district is not scheduled to start until August 19, which is a Wednesday.

    It is not clear if the South Fork District has planning days set for staff and if staff are still expected to report.

    WELDON, CA- The Kern County Sheriff's Office says they have uncovered evidence they believe is from the shooter.

    While that is helping the continued search, Weldon residents say they want it over soon.

    The mountain areas around Weldon have been deputies' work place for the last couple days.

    Searching the desert-like areas for any trace of the shooter.

    Deputies have been searching ditches and hiding spots for the shooter. They say they will not stop until he is found.

    The Kern County Sheriff's office says they have found some evidence. Though they won't say what it is.

    "We have come across some items during the search that we believe he left behind, the suspect left behind. We have been able to track footprints throughout the search. As we've moved along during the search we've recovered some evidence, items evidence that we believe are associated with the suspect," said Kern County Sheriff's Office spokesman Ray Pruitt.

    Traces of a man who has eluded deputies for almost a week now. The sheriff's office says they haven't ruled out the possibility that he is receiving help.

    "I mean it's a possibility. We don't know if this suspect is from the area or not. We haven't identified him. So that's certainly a possibility. But there is no indication at this point that anybody else is involved except this suspect." Pruitt said.

    As the search continues, Weldon residents say they're tired of the hunt taking over their community.

    "Sick and tired of one person effecting all of this," said Weldon resident Walter Morrison.

    Yet Morrison says if the shooter comes, he and his neighbors will be ready for him.

    Buses for the nearby K-8 Piute Mountain School in Caliente haven't been running.

    Transportation for the year round school, which has been closed for two days, covers the search area.

    "We send out two buses a day so it's 100 miles total that our two buses collectively travel a day. And so its a big area," said Caliente Union School District Superintendent Kathleen Hansen.

    They say while playgrounds won't be full with the 57 students until the search is over, the main priority is safety.

    "We have built in snow days that we already have on our calendar so that we can make up the days," Hansen said.
    Thirteen different agencies and about 75 deputies will continue the search until the shooter is found.

    BAKERSFIELD, CA - The cabin where the three young men were held at gunpoint is in a remote area where neighbors say they would notice if someone or something was out of place. "We know, everybody knows everybody else and so we've been watching out for strange people," said Debbie Donaldson.  
     
    Twin Oaks is a small community with a population of only a few hundred. "If somebody showed up and we didn't recognize them, we'd be looking at them real closely," added Donaldson. 

    Debbie Donaldson works at the Twin Oaks General Store, where the three young men went for help Tuesday after escaping the kidnapper at their cabin about 10 miles up this dirt road.  She says she doesn't recognize the composite sketch but the community is very aware of anything out of the ordinary.  "It's something we've never dealt with before. It's always been very quiet up here and so people are really concerned about it."
     
    If you recognize this man the sheriff's department is asking you to call the non-emergency number at 661-861-3110.

    BAKERSFIELD - Eighteen different agencies and community groups are helping in the search for a killer in eastern Kern County. They're searching a five square mile grid in the high desert southeast of Lake Isabella, about 40 miles northeast of downtown Bakersfield.

    Helicopters circle overhead all over the Kelso Valley. Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood, said the search will continue until the man is found.

    Susan Ramay lives and works near Weldon and said Kern Valley's gold and tungsten mining past might give the killer a place to hide. "There are caves. There are mines. We are talkin' mines that go pretty deep and that have two openings so he can go in one end and out the other," said Ramay.

    The high mountain climate and complex terrain has made the search difficult. "It's got sand dunes. It's got riparian forests. It's very dense in some areas and others very sparse."

    With temperatures in the mid-90's, the effectiveness is diminished for some of law enforcement's best technology. Like the FLIR, infrared goggles on helicopters. They usually can pick up a person's body heat at night, making it very difficult to hide outdoors. "Everything heats up during the day and all those rocks stay hot most of the night. So the FLIR is not that effective because there are a lot of targets you have to eliminate so it's difficult in this weather," said Youngblood.

    Police and local residents think the same man shot two deputies, killed a 64-year-old man and kidnapped three men within the last week. Some residents think the killer might be a survivalist, ex-military or some kind of mountain man. "We have not identified the suspect positively yet. We are working on trying to do that. I think that it's pretty important to do that," said Youngblood.

    The Sheriff's Department said it's following up on numerous tips of suspicious people in the area and said they have to take each tip seriously because any one of them could help crack this case.

    We are learning more about kidnapping that started all of this -- one week ago in a cabin about 15 miles southeast of Twin Oaks.

    The cabin where the three young men were held at gunpoint is in a remote area where neighbors say they would notice if someone or something was out of place.

    "We know, everybody knows everybody else and so we've been watching out for strange people," said Debbie Donaldson.

    Donaldson works at the Twin Oaks General Store, where the three young men went for help Tuesday after escaping the kidnapper at their cabin about 10 miles up this dirt road. She says she doesn't recognize the composite sketch but the community is very aware of anything out of the ordinary.

    "It's something we've never dealt with before. It's always been very quiet up here and so people are really concerned about it," she said.

    Twin Oaks is a tight-knit community with a population of only a few hundred. it's roughly between Bakersfield and Tehachapi, but just over the mountain from the Weldon area, where the search is now focused. There is a web of dirt roads and trails - including the pacific crest trail - that connect this mountainous area with that more-desert-like terrain. Both Weldon and Twin Oaks are the kinds of community where everyone knows everyone else.

    Donaldson said, "If somebody showed up and we didn't recognize them, we'd be looking at them real closely."

    If you recognize this man the sheriff's department is asking you to call the non emergency number at 661-861-3110.

    BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The search continues for the man officials believe is responsible for three major crimes.

    The Kern County Sheriff's office says they are confident they have evidence linking the killer to a kidnapping, murder, and shooting of two deputies.

    Fifteen different law enforcement agencies are helping with the search. And it is costly.

    Kern County Sheriff's office says they don't know how much this search costs. They say the focus now is just finding the man. "I don't know if we've even attempted to make a determination. But that's not what we're focused on. We're focused on the fact that there is a person out there who is violent, is dangerous to this community, and our focus is on finding that person and taking him into custody so that we can prevent another tragedy," says public information officer Ray Pruitt. 

    The Kern County Fire Department says they have deployed 1 Fire Engine Crew managing the Heli-Spot, 1 Jet Fuel Tender for the helicopters, 1 Regular Fuel Tender for vehicles, and 1 Refrigerated Truck delivering supplies. They say they are keeping track of fuel costs but won't know figures until after the search is over.

    Local police departments are also using their resources. Ridgecrest police have sent 11 officers on 12 hour shifts.  Jed McLaughlan, Ridgecrest police captain "There's overtime cost associated with it, yes."

    As the search continues, the school where the command post is located is growing more worried about its effect on the upcoming school year.

    School employees told me the start date is August 19, and they hope the search ends well before that time.

    Other schools have snow days and other contingency days built into the calendar. But they do not. So they are hoping school starts at the scheduled time.
