SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The surviving suspect in a police chase that resulted in the shooting of Bodie, a Sacramento Police Department K9 officer, has been convicted of four felonies.
In May 2012, Leslie McCulley and Lucus Webb led police on a chase through the Land Park area in a stolen vehicle. Due to concerns for the public’s safety, police abandoned the chase. Shortly thereafter, the vehicle was found deserted and the suspects nearby.
Officers quickly detained McCulley, while Webb fled to a nearby residence. A standoff ensued at the home with Webb, resulting in the shooting of Bodie, and Webb’s death.
Investigators say McCulley later admitted Webb had intent to kill an officer, and encouraged him to do so.
McCulley was convicted of aiding and abetting premeditated and deliberate attempted murder, aiding and abetting reckless evasion of peace officers, felon in possession of a gun, and possession of a stolen car.
Sentencing is set for Oct. 11.
