A suspect was injured in an officer-involved shooting Monday evening in Sacramento, according to the Sacramento Police Department.

Bail recovery agents arrived at a home along Bellini Way, but were unable to make contact with the man they were looking for.

Just after 7 p.m., police were called to the home to make contact with the man when it became clear he was not going to come out. After police suspected he might be armed, a perimeter was set up near 50th Avenue and Bellini Wy.

Police along with a K9 officer entered the home and tried to coax the person out of a bathroom inside. While still in the bathroom, police said the man fired a gun "in an unknown direction," confirming he had a firearm.

An officer continued talking with the suspect for more than 30 minutes, trying to convince him to surrender safely.

 

While negotiating with the suspect, the suspect brandished the handgun toward the officer. The 17-year veteran then fired his gun at the suspect, striking him several times.

No officers were hurt in the gunfire, and the suspect was transported to a nearby hospital where he is reportedly stable.
