On Thursday afternoon, a man was shot and died in the Teralta West area near the spot where police had earlier been called to allegations of a man carrying a pistol. Around 11:14 a.m., San Diego police responded to complaints of a man carrying a gun in the 4000 block of 42nd Street in City Heights. When police came, they set up a cordon and started working to apprehend the armed man, who was occasionally holding his gun to his head.
Officers on the ground were supported by San Diego Police’s ABLE (Airborne Law Enforcement) helicopter, which was tracked flying overhead the event. According to a San Diego Sheriff’s investigator who spoke to CBS 8, the man was ordered to drop the weapon he was carrying, but he disobeyed and fled from the responding cops. According to authorities, the suspect was blasted with beanbags to force him to submit, and he then collapsed to the ground.
The suspect was shot by cops after repeatedly being told to drop his weapon, according to the sheriff, as he tried to stand up after going to the ground while still carrying a revolver. Unknown male suspect, aged 25 to 35, was pronounced deceased at the scene. Lockdown was implemented at the nearby Central Elementary School, which served kindergarten through fifth graders and was located in the 4000 block of Polk Avenue, because of the continued police action in the area.
According to their website, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, a kindergarten through eighth-grade school located in the 4000 block of 42nd Street, was also claimed to be open. However, it is uncertain if they were directly impacted by the adjacent police activity. Following an officer using their service weapon to cause injury to a person, San Diego Sheriff’s Department and other San Diego law enforcement agencies cooperated to attend to the scene.
