SummaryA CHP officer on routine patrol westbound on 23rd Avenue noticed a man with a handgun walking on the sidewalk on the north side of the street in a residential neighborhood. The officer made a U-turn, got out of his vehicle and ordered the man to put down the gun. The man refused and led the officer on a brief foot pursuit, Ramos said. While calling for backup on his portable radio, the officer observed the man attempting to charge the weapon. Believing that the man had chambered a round and prepared his weapon to fire, and based on the man's repeated refusal to drop the gun, the officer believed he was in imminent danger. The officer fired his duty weapon several times, and the man was struck once in the upper body.
