1 Man Dies, 3 Escape in Police-Involved Shooting

Corona Jeanine Weech-Gomez visited the scene of the police-involved shooting on Second Street, The Grove where a man died shortly after 12 noon.

The man has not been officially identified but here’s what we know:

  • Police received information about several individuals assembled in the area in possession of a firearm.
  • A description was given to police and when officers arrived and approached the individuals, the 3 individuals ran away while the 4th individual “engaged police and produced a weapon.”
  • Police shot the individual and he died on the scene.
  • Police say they recovered the weapon.

What Assistant Commissioner Solomon Cash says

Solomon Cash says he was not certain if a bodycam was used in the incident and the police do not have a description of the three individuals that ran away.

Cash warned anyone that would engage the police with a weapon, “If you find yourself engaging in criminality and you are confronted by officers, surrender. I can tell you, if you use deadly force at officers, we have to engage you and use justifiable force toward you.”
