Sword-armed suspect barricaded inside Sacramento home

SACRAMENTO – The suspect who was barricaded in a Sacramento home has now been taken to the hospital after an officer-involved shooting Wednesday morning. The scene is along the 100 block of Dragonfly Circle. Sacramento police said officers responded just before 1 a.m. to do a welfare check of a person reportedly experiencing a mental health crisis. Officers said they also soon learned that the person had reportedly armed himself with a sword. A woman and two young children who were inside the home were allegedly held against their will and not allowed to leave, police said. Crisis negotiators responded to the scene and officers spent the next more than seven hours trying to de-escalate the situation. A little after 8 a.m., police announced that an officer-involved shooting had occurred. The suspect has been taken to the hospital for treatment, but no information on their condition has been released. No officers nor any of the other people who were in the home were hurt, police said. Exactly what led up to the shooting is unclear. Expect a large police presence in the neighborhood through the morning as police investigate the scene.

SACRAMENTO COUNTY – Investigators believe DUI was a factor in a crash that left an Elk Grove man dead and his passenger with major injuries early Tuesday morning. California Highway Patrol says, just before 2:30 a.m., officers responded to the area of Sheldon Lake Drive and Grant Line Road for a rollover crash. Officers found that a car was apparently speeding down Sunrise Boulevard when it failed to negotiate the curve – sending it down a drainage ditch. The car overturned several times, crashing into a wood fence and a parked car, before it finally came to a rest in a vacant lot. Officers say the passenger, a 21-year-old woman from Elk Grove, was ejected in the crash and suffered major injuries. She was not wearing a seat belt, CHP says.
