A man was shot and killed Tuesday night by Redding 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.
Shortly after 6 p.m. numerous gunshots could be heard throughout the neighborhood.
“He came in and out of the apartment, we believe, 10 to 15 times. The last time the subject exited the apartment, there were shots fired,” Brindley said.
He did not know whether the man fired at the officers and couldn’t say whether the man was brandishing a gun when he came out of the apartment the final time.
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.
The officers were placed on administrative leave and the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case because Redding police officers were involved in the shooting, Brindley 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.
The video shows officers setting up around the man’s apartment and attempting to communicate with him.
