SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A bizarre officer-involved shooting in Sacramento Monday ended with a suspect and a K-9 officer injured.
It happened just before 9:30 p.m. night near Marysville and Los Robles boulevards in the Del Paso Heights neighborhood.
Investigators say a man in a truck rammed a gate at a police facility then drove into the parking lot and crashed into an empty parked patrol vehicle. The truck then continued into the neighborhood and crashed into the front yard of a home — that’s when officers and a k-9 unit moved in.
The suspect reportedly kept running onto Sheldon Street and assaulted someone in a yard with a metal pipe and stole that person’s keys to their vehicle. He then tried to get away, but was fought off by that victim and was arrested. The unidentified suspect is in the hospital where he’s listed in critical condition.
The police K-9 was rushed to a veterinarian to be treated for cuts.
