Officer-Involved Shooting in Sacramento

Close to Stoney's. Joe the Plumber got his head cracked there about 12 years ago. Hope no one else gets their head cracked:
Sacramento police shot and killed a man Monday who both witnesses and police said was armed and acting erratically on Del Paso Boulevard.

The tense situation that led to the man’s death began about 9:25 a.m. near an apartment complex on Lochbrae Road, one block from Del Paso Boulevard. One officer suffered a minor injury in a fall during the confrontation with the man who witnesses said had a knife and a gun.

Witnesses initially saw the man walking through the Woodlake Oaks apartments on Lochbrae Road. The man, who appeared to be in his 50s or 60s and was dressed all in black, was acting in an erratic manner and was yelling, they said.

An officer in a patrol car began following the man as he swung his hands in the air as if performing karate chops, witnesses said. He then walked onto nearby Del Paso Boulevard as more police responded.
