The car was spotted by Solano County sheriff’s deputies around 9:45 a.m. near Lemon Street and Sonoma Boulevard. Police pursued it to Lemon and Sheridan streets, where it crashed into a fire hydrant and went through a fence and into the front yard of a home, Vallejo Fire Capt. Dan Sarna said. The driver then fled on foot. At least one resident reported that he was carrying a handgun as he ran, O’Connell said.

Officers located him in the yard of 609 Sheridan St. and ordered him to show his hands, but instead he allegedly refused and pointed a handgun at officers, O’Connell said. They fired their guns, striking Huey multiple times. Huey died at the scene. No police officers were injured. The officers involved have been placed on administrative leave, and the Solano County District Attorney’s Office and Vallejo police are investigating the incident, O’Connell said.

  • He did not point a gun at the police – he had disposed of the firearm before going into the back yard

Come on now….Please keep you’r UGLY RUDE ass comments to your self.. We lost a 17 year old boy!! His Dad is never going to see him again! Have a heart.. RIP Jared I LOVE YOU AND I ALWAYS WILL

  • Elizabeth, you said it best.

    Also, I think it’s interesting how these “ladies” know all the facts of this case because of some shaky video someone across the street was taking on their phone, which didn’t actually show anything other than police officers moving into position and the sound of gunshots.

    Also, in their outpouring of grief, isn’t also a shame that these “ladies” couldn’t have been there for Jared when he was kicked out of his father’s house, living on the streets, and hustling for money to support his habits? Funny how they all flocked to decry the “evil police” after the fact. Guess that’s easier than actually helping someone.

  • First of all, my heart goes out to Jared’s family and friends. I’m sure in your eyes he was a wonderful person and a joy to be around. But how do you get around the facts of the case? This kid robbed a covenience store (dodged a bullet there) because the clerk probably didn’t have a gun handy, and then takes off in a “stolen” car, which he crashes. He then takes off running, and when officers catch up with him, he points a gun at them. There is so many violations of law in this scenario that I have lost count. Was this shooting justified? I would have to say “YES.” Should the police officers have waited until one of their own was shot and killed first? I would say “No.” Please support your local police force. You have no idea what they put up with on a daily basis. If you can’t support them, don’t bother calling them when you get robbed and have a gun pointed in your face.

  • Fuuck What ANYBODY Gotta say about Jared , The Police were WRONG for what they did ! He didnt deserve to qo the way he did , They couldve fCkn tased him if them beinq scared was the case ! Jared was a qood kid , yeah he did some stupid things but handling him the way the police did wasnt justice .. Jared always had me laughing , he really had a good heart , he was just a baby, he had his whole life ahead of him & didnt even get a chance to live it .. I pray for his family, and all those close to him , He’s in a better place now At least , away from all this cruel, corrupt world ! R.i.P Lil Jared ! We Love You ; Your Forever In My Heaart & Prayers !

  • Jared was my baby brother and this article is all lies ! There are several videos and you can hear my brother say don’t shoot don’t shoot . He was only 17 yrs old ..The police officers had no regard to his life . Those officers who shot and killed him are Murders of a child !! I hope it haunts them the rest of their lives for what they did. My brother may have done some stupid things leading up to his tragic murder . How ever the more I find out about what happens the more it is apparent the police officers were wrong ! My family is prepared to tell the world of this murder and Injustice! Justice for Jared !!
