Updated (2/27/17): Law enforcement have released the identification of the women as Evin Sanna Olsen, 46 of Modesto. Olsen and her husband are the owners of Barkin’ Dog Grill in downtown Modesto. For more information on Olsen, watch our friends on FOX40 tonight at 10pm and visit them at www.fox40.com.
The cause of the officer involved shooting is still not known to us. We’ve contacted the various agencies and the response is the same, “we aren’t going to comment during the investigation.”
The Manteca Bulletin reported that one neighbor was awake at the time and inferred that the woman attempted to run over deputies with her vehicle which prompted the officers to open fire on her while she was still behind the wheel. myRipon.com talked to one neighbor and they said they were awakened by hearing loud commands of “Stop!” over and over again before hearing the crash into the house which backs up the prior claim. We have not had any of the investigators verify that story at this time though.
One thing we do now know though is that Evin Sanna Olsen suffered from bipolar disorder. Her husband, Hanibal Yadegar told the Modesto Bee that [Evin] was undergoing a manic episode that started in January when she stopped taking her medication. Yadegar said he had helped his wife get back on track before. “I just couldn’t this time around,” he said.
