California Self-Defense: Good Samaritans help bring down man accused of shooting at Fresno police officers :: 03/25/2020

FRESNO, Calif. (FOX26) — A couple of good Samaritans helped police stop a man accused of shooting at officers in Fresno.

Just after 5:30 pm Tuesday, Fresno Police were patrolling in the area of Belmont and Valeria when they spotted a 2006 Nissan speeding.

Officers tried to pull over the car, but the driver refused to stop and sped off.

The driver led police on a short chase and ended up crashing near Valeria and Grant.

After the crash, the driver hopped out of the car with a pump shotgun.

He then reportedly aimed it at the officers and began firing at them.

After firing a couple of rounds, he then turned around and started to run away from officers.

During this time, a good Samaritan was walking down the street and spotted the guy running toward him with a shotgun.

That good Samaritan turned out to be a CCW holder and pulled out his gun to defend himself.

He fired one time at the suspect, making him fall to the ground.

The suspect got back up and ran to a nearby apartment complex, where he tried to break into a unit.

Another good Samaritan saw what was going on and tackled the suspect.

He held the suspect down until officers could catch up and arrest him.

Police say the driver was hit once in the chest by a bullet.

He was taken to Community Regional Medical Center to have his injuries treated.

He will be facing two counts of attempted murder on a peace officer, as well as other gun-related charges.

Police are still searching for the passenger that bailed from the car.
