Posted on 03/03/2014 12:11:27 AM PST by RC one
Around 2:15 a.m., Sacramento County Sheriffs deputies got several calls from people living near Antelope and Walerga Roads who heard gunshots.
While deputies were on their way to check it out, they got more calls reporting a man walking near Antelope Road with a gun. The man, in his late 20s, was walking near Don Julio Boulevard with an assault rifle when deputies asked him to drop the weapon.
According to the deputies, the man refused to drop the rifle, and pulled a second gun from inside his jacket, and pointed it at them.
Both deputies shot at the man; he was treated by emergency personnel but later died at the hospital.

Oh sure, that's what happened.
yeah, that's the ticket.
I bet the dashcam video is evaporating at this moment.
Did he shoot himself 17 times with a nailgun, too?
well they need to cover all the bases you see, two guns is better than one.
Very plausible situation. How can you not see it?
“...the man refused to drop the rifle, and pulled a second gun from inside his jacket, and pointed it at them.”
The only reason someone I would think would do something like that would be if the rifle was either unloaded or in non-functional state. And there’s not much point in carrying around a firearm that doesn’t shoot, is there?
So yeah, this is a weird one. Unless the guy was completely off his bean, or was looking to commit suicide by cop, it just isn’t adding up for me.
That is next to I80. They might as well rename it MLK Blvd. Lots of freaks in that area.
Nope. I don’t see it. If he was up to no good, he wouldn’t be walking down the road with a rifle in hand. He would have ditched the rifle. This guy was a hunter returning to his vehicle. The cops shot him because that’s what cops do these days. they then planted the “drop gun” on him because that’s also what cops do these days. Then they conspired amongst themselves to cover up the deed.
Oh I got it.
It’s ok to just kill “freaks”.
I have come to the conclusion that stupid people should not be allowed access to cell phones. It seems the dummies first action is to call the police for anything that appears at all gun related. There should be a test given before the purchase of a cell or issuance of an Obozo phone, if you are not smart enough to tie your shoes, no cell for you. I think a lot of people are and will be killed as the result of dumba55es with cells. Someone hears a gunshot and someone ends up dead. See the link?
“The only reason someone I would think would do something like that would be if the rifle was either unloaded or in non-functional state”
Might be the rifle was a cane
Good point! Was he hunting at 3am? I’ve been hunting for 50 yrs., and somehow never had to explain my circumstance, to the many folks I’ve run across on the coast, mountain or high desert. Skittish kops, yep, they happen. Yet, most of the rural cops are well known by everyone, and visa versa. Walking down a road with a long gun, ain’t a big deal. Droppin’ it, to divert...well, I don’t know what happen. Where I live, you’d best know where you are.
Wait and see, latest way to off your no so lucky individual is to super glue an airsoft assault rifle to his hands, get him drunk, call the cops, drop him off near a school or any liberal palace of power and he will immediately be gunned down.
The over testosteroned SWAT/military cowards will be high fiving how macho they are for days.
It sounds like it was probably closer to 2 am, still, point taken. I have shot more varmints than I can remember in the wee hours of the morning however. It isn't clear what he was doing but it seems like he would have to be one dumb criminal to go commit a gun crime and then walk down the road in plain site with the weapon after the fact. I think anybody that was concerend about being implicated in any wrong doing involving a ifrearm would have hidden the weapon and returned later for it when there was a decreased chance of being caught with the weapon.
Well, dumb criminals are probably not unusual. Good enough, RC one, nice conversing with you. Take care.
You are making the assumption that the man was operating normally and of sound mind.
and why shouldn’t I?
Yep. Doesn’t pass the smell test. I’ve never seen LEOs so trigger happy and hostile towards its “citizens” as I have in the last several years.
Been on those streets many times. I never stopped for anything. My son goes to Sac St.
That was my first thought as well.
As much as you may not like cops, this is from your own article. Meaning, citizens called it in.
Is that against the law? walking down a public road with a rifle in plain view?
Yup, that sounds exactly what happened. The man goes firing off rounds in public to attract attention so the police came. He brandished a big weapon in the authorities face, which put the officers on an even higher alert. Then he pulls out another one that was concealed under his clothing, then points it at them.
Yup - looks like suicide by cop.
seems to be a lot of “suicide by cops” lately.
I don't know too many who would throw away an expensive rifle just because it malfunctions. I go for the "suicide by cop" explanation.
This is the result desired by those who issue the ObamaPhones.
And since dead men tell no tales, they'll get away with it too.
There’s a cop this morning looking to obtain a new drop gun.
Sounds like suicide by cop. The rifle was probably non-functional.
This location is right in the middle of the Sacramento suburbs.
Drama queens with cell phones. What could go wrong. If you are going to get shot anyway, I guess you might as well do something to deserve it. Looks like it is coming to that.
If you look slightly to the north of antelope road and walegra, there’s an immense open area that would be ideal for varmint hunting/shooting. This incident occurred on the outskirts of the Sacramento suburbs approximately 2 miles away from this open area. When I was a kid, I would walk from my home to some hunting fields that were not too much farther than that. It’s plausible.
The prevalence of mind altering drugs in this country.
the prevalence of rational level headed individuals is far greater than the prevalence of the drug addled. As such, given no information to suggest otherwise, I would assume that someone were rational and level headed before I would assume otherwise. I meet lots of different people in my day to day to activities and they are almost always rational and level headed.
Oh, my bad! I meant that I wouldn’t think the guy would take a rifle out and about if it were *already* broken - unless again, suicide-by-cop was the intent all along.
I quite agree that no one is likely to throw away a weapon that has a mechanical failure in the field.
