Officers responding to a single-car crash Saturday night in the area of Dixon Avenue and I-80 located Walker’s vehicle about 20 feet down an embankment with significant damage to the rear window, the district attorney’s office said. The agency said Walker then got out of the driver’s seat and displayed signs of being drunk and was “evasive with the officers keeping his hand in his sweatpants.”
According to the district attorney, Walker said, “I’m not going to do that,” when officers instructed him to show his hands. Walker then allegedly pulled out a gun and refused the officers’ repeated commands to drop it.READ MORE: Pressure Behind The Wheel: Sacramento Mover Drove Historic Victorian Mansion Through San Francisco
As Walker pointed the gun toward one of the officers, the officers shot him, the district attorney said. Walker died at the scene.
In Friday’s update, the district attorney said reports from a coroner and pathologist are still pending. Further updates will come after the final review of the shooting is concluded.MORE NEWS: Early COVID Patient Remembers Military Quarantine After Cruise Ship Outbreak
