Fresno Police Officers Shoot and Kill Man

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) - Two Fresno Police officers are on administrative leave after detectives say they shot and killed a man Tuesday evening.

Investigators say the officers were called to Vassar and San Pablo in Central Fresno for a family fight.  The family told officers that their 26 year-old relative was high on meth and had been up for 24-hours. Detectives say the family told them that the man was violent and they were afraid to go inside their home.

According to officers, the family gave police a key to their back door. A K-9 dog was sent into the home first and found the 26 year-old in a bedroom. Police say four officers went into the home and two officers went to the bedroom. Investigators say the two officers pulled the K-9 off the man, but he raised a steak knife over this head.

Police Chief Jerry Dyer says both officers fired their guns at the man. The 26 year-old was taken to CRMC where he died.

Detectives are still investigating and are not releasing the name of the man.
