Napa County sheriff’s officials on Wednesday released the body camera footage from an officer-involved shooting over the weekend.

The deputy, Riley Jarecki, shot and killed a man during a gunfire exchange Sunday night, sheriff’s officials said. The 11 p.m. shooting happened on Henry Road, west of Napa. The man shot first, firing at the deputy from inside his car, the Napa County Sheriff’s Office said. His name wasn’t released as his family hadn’t been notified. He died at the scene.

The officer, Deputy Riley Jarecki, wasn’t injured, officials said. She was placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.

Sheriff’s officials plan to hold a press conference Wednesday afternoon to share more details about the shooting.
