SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The man accused of killing Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputy Mark Stasyuk appeared in court briefly on Friday.

Anton Paris, 38, was wheeled into his hearing with a Sacramento County Superior Court judge in a wheelchair. Police say he was shot in a gunfight between deputies before he was taken into custody. He is still recovering from his injuries.

Paris is accused of firing multiple shots at Stasyuk, killing him almost instantly outside of a Pep Boys in Rancho Cordova back in September. Stasyuk's partner and a clerk at the auto parts store were also hurt in the shooting.
