Man Shooting into Apartment Complex Killed by California Police

January 07, 2016  | 

A man was shot and killed Tuesday night by Redding, CA, police after they were called to an apartment complex for a reported shooting.

Police said someone called 911 before 6 p.m. to report a man firing a gun indiscriminately at an apartment complex in the 200 block of Boulder Creek Drive just north of Lake Boulevard.

Redding police Lt. Pete Brindley said several officers arrived at the apartment and tried to negotiate with him. 

The man was not identified by police. Police heard from a witness that the man had been making incoherent statements and yelling about President Obama, Brindley said. He said police weren’t able to negotiate with the man.

None of the officers involved was injured, Brindley said. He did not know how many officers were involved or how many shots were fired. Officers earlier shot beanbag rounds at the man, he said.

Jason Crawford, who lived across from the man in the complex, said he videotaped the shooting from the window in the front room of his apartment. At the end of Crawford’s video the man exits through the front door of the apartment holding a gun in his outstretched hand and then numerous shots rang out.
