At approximately noon Sunday, a deputy with the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle near S. Calle Ranchita and E. Camino Viejo in Fort Mohave. An occupant of the vehicle reportedly opened fire on the deputy, striking the MCSO vehicle multiple times. The deputy was not injured during the shooting.
