MT. SHASTA, Calif. — A coalition of law enforcement agencies arrested a Mt. Shasta man on Tuesday, exactly one week after he allegedly attacked deputies with knives before they shot and injured him.

Officers descended on the home of 19-year-old Jesse Macias just after 8 a.m. on Tuesday, taking him into custody on a laundry list of serious charges — including felony resisting arrest, assault with a deadly weapon (non-firearm), and attempted murder of a police officer, the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office said.

According to the agency, Macias confronted deputies on November 5 "armed with two large knives" after his father called dispatch to report that he was acting strangely. The responding officers reportedly found Macias standing in the middle of Douglas Lane with both of the weapons.

"The man perpetrated an assault against one or more of the peace officers present during the contact and an officer-involved shooting ensued, involving the SCSO deputy and sergeant," the Sheriff's Office said.

At the time, Macias was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Mt. Shasta for treatment of his gunshot wounds. The involved officers were not injured.

Since then, the "Siskiyou County Interagency Critical Incident Investigation Team" has been looking into the incident, led by the Yreka Police Department. Both the deputy and sergeant were placed on administrative leave.

"Also routine in use of force incidents is the requirement for an administrative investigation, which determines if departmental policies and procedures were followed," the Sheriff's Office said. "The administrative investigation was initiated and will be completed by SCSO’s Major Crimes Unit, a team comprised of a detective sergeant, two detectives, and a forensic technician."

Although Macias was arrested immediately following the shooting, he was released to the hospital's care for further treatment. Following this second arrest, the Sheriff's Office said, Macias will be arraigned on his felony charges within the next 48 hours.
