2
On October 16, 2016 at approximately 8:50 PM two Vallejo police officers were inside the Starbucks coffee house at 199 Lincoln Rd. West. Officers observed a black male adult open the door to the business and point an assault style weapon with a high capacity drum magazine in their direction.
The suspect appeared to be attempting to manipulate the gun as if it had malfunctioned.
The two officers drew their weapons in an attempt to protect themselves. The suspect fled through the parking lot, westbound on Magazine Street. The officers pursued the suspect on foot. The officers engaged the suspect near the intersection of Magazine and Sheridan Streets as he continued to manipulate the weapon and presented himself as a lethal threat to the officers.
The suspect was struck three times by gunfire before falling. The suspect was taken into custody and was found to be carrying an additional loaded handgun and wearing body-armor. The suspect was transported to a local hospital and is currently being treated for life threatening injuries.
The two involved officers were not injured.
The Vallejo Police Department is currently investigating this incident with the assistance of the Solano County District Attorney’s Office.
