    Private land owners in Northern California aren't just stumbling across marijuana plants, but traps and armed guards as well.

    A suspect was killed this morning in an officer-involved shooting  during a marijuana eradication operation in Santa Clara County, sheriff's  Sgt. Rick Sung said.

    The operation was conducted jointly by the Alameda County and  Santa Clara County sheriff's offices in the hills near Mines Road, outside of  Livermore, Sung said.

    Sung said shots were fired and one suspect was confirmed dead at  the scene.
