Monday an aggressive male was shot by officers when he continued to advance on them refusing to show his hands Monday morning in the Upper Land Park area of Sacramento.
“Officers were dispatched to the 100 block of Seavey Circle at 11:30 a.m. regarding a domestic violence call,” said Captain Mike Bray, Sacramento Police Department.
“The male subject described in the call said he was going to shoot somebody. So officers respond; they meet the subject who was described in the call out in the parking lot. The subject is very aggressive with the officers; he has a hand concealed in his shirt at this point. Officers are trying to negotiate with him, ‘let me see your hands,’ that type of thing trying to get him to show his hands. But the subject is very aggressive saying he is going to shoot the officers. He starts to go towards the officers, the officers then retreat, the subject keeps advancing, the officers are trying to negotiate with him. The subject ends up approaching the officers refusing to remove his hand and one of our officers fired. He was transported to the hospital and we’re still gathering facts. He said ‘if you come any closer I’m going to shoot you,’ things of that nature. It was a domestic violence related call and then the female said the male said he was going to shoot somebody.”
The subject was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries to the chest according to officials.
