Officers spotted the suspect driving a red minivan in the area and tried to pull him over, but he took off. A chase then started, with officers at one point using “stop-sticks” to try and disable the car.
The suspect, 38-year-old Adan Martinez, eventually was cornered in an industrial complex in the 8500 block of Fruitridge Road. When he tried to get away, two officers opened fire.READ MORE: Vehicle Drives Into Business In Sacramento
