Blackhawk: Suspect Arrested for Attempted Murder of a Peace Officer

by ECT

On Sunday afternoon at appointment 2:00 PM, an unknown person entered the Blackhawk Police Substation in the Blackhawk community and contacted a deputy sheriff there. The subject displayed erratic behavior and was asked to leave the community.

Due to the subject contact, Danville police responded to the substation to assist the deputy.

As the man was leaving in his car, he accelerated his vehicle rapidly and deliberately attempted to run down the officers and deputy. The suspect’s vehicle struck the deputy and a Danville officer. Both fell to the ground. A Danville Police Sergeant discharged his firearm, striking the vehicle, but not the suspect. The suspect vehicle fled.

The suspect and his vehicle were located about a mile away by responding deputies. He was apprehended after a struggle with deputies.

The deputy who was hit by the vehicle was treated and released from a local hospital. The officer was treated at the scene by paramedics.

The suspect has been identified as 25-year-old Eduardo Carrillo of Stockton. After being interviewed by detectives, he was booked into the Martinez Detention Facility on three counts of attempted murder of a peace officer and a probation violation. He is being held in lieu of $1.5 million bail.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Investigation Division at (925) 313-2600. For any tips, email: [email protected] or call (866) 846-3592 to leave an anonymous voice message.

Yes, nice that officers are ok, but the ‘backthe blue/blue lives matter’ position is arguable. we learned this year when some must decide in “to protect and serve __”:
a) the public
b) muh pension
