Stockton Police and CDC Officer Shoot San Jose Kidnapping Suspect
A suspect was hospitalized in critical condition Thursday night following an officer-involved shooting in Stockton.
The Stockton Police Department reports San Jose police investigators tracked down a wanted parolee to a home on Mist Trail Drive, a neighborhood located in Weston Ranch. Investigators linked the man to a kidnapping and carjacking case. The victim, in that case, is safe, according to the police department.
Several people who were inside the home were told to leave when officers arrived.
After the armed suspect ran out behind the home he spotted the officers approaching, according to the police department. That’s when he came back inside and ran upstairs.
As officers approached the man in the home the police department says he “confronted” them while holding a handgun. A Department of Corrections officer and a Stockton officer fired their weapons, hitting the suspect.
All officers who responded to the incident are OK, according to the police department.
Those inside the home at the time of the shooting are being questioned by investigators.
