Fresno detective shoots, kills man who police say attacked him at department headquarters

Christian Martinez
A Fresno detective on Tuesday shot and killed a man who he said had assaulted him at police headquarters, officials said.

The incident was reported around 11:45 a.m. at the Fresno Police Department headquarters at 2323 Mariposa Street.

The man assaulted the detective in his office before the detective shot him with his firearm, Fresno Police Chief Paco Balderrama said in a Facebook Live update.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. The detective suffered “lacerations on the forehead and part of his neck,” Balderrama said, and was recovering at a hospital.

Balderrama said the detective was hit in the head and neck area by an undisclosed object.

‘A sad situation’: Greenwood police shoot, kill woman in department parking lot after chase

Sarah Nelson, Indianapolis Star
Greenwood police say they don’t know why Monica Vaught led pursuing officers to the department’s parking lot or why she twice barreled toward them in her vehicle.

“We do not know why she came to the police department at this time,” Greenwood Police Chief James Ison told reporters on Wednesday. “I’m hoping throughout the course of the investigation we can shed a little light on that.”

But she won’t be able to tell them.

Four Greenwood officers opened fire on the vehicle Vaught was driving, fatally wounding the 49-year-old Tuesday.

The police shooting, a relatively rare occurrence in Greenwood, is under an internal and criminal investigation.

First! Teh stoopid WAS strong in these two mopes. Good shoot 10-98NR. 10-51 to Dunkin.


Yepper, takes a special kind of stoopid to attack the bear in his own den.

Paladin’s SSA was custom built for the Tee Vee Show. Matt Dillon’s was an original, 1892(?) IIRC, both sold for a bloody fortune to collectors.

It is in the DNA of grubermiints to become oppressive and take away freedoms.

Last checkup from the eye doc today, plus a provision run. And it’s raining, DAMNIT! But, I can see clearly now and the rain, along with the pine pollen, will be gone by the time I get back this pm. Y’all be good little Boys and Girls.


Glad the eyes are good now, KoB.
You’ll be able to see the wrong-way 18-wheeler before hit hits you in the rain. (Heaven forbid!)

Or the idiot that decides to pass you on the righthand shoulder…because he really needs to be in front of you! (Had that happen yesterday).

Speaking of eye exams…anyone try those Vuity eye drops for the getting older condition of not being able to read small print in front of you (presbyopia)?

I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day…….”

Love the single six. Had one in 9.5 inch that I must have put
a gazillion rnds thru. Lost it in a house fire.
Have one in 6.5 inch stainless. Unfired.

“hit in the head and neck area by an undisclosed object”
Why undisclosed? Sounds like he got hit with an angry Cat.


The single six is one I semi-regret letting go, but I traded mine for a Winchester 30-30 that I still use.

That’s Ex-PH2’s prevue. Need to ask her about it.

Assaulting a cop in his office? Definitely worth a Darwin Awards Honorable Mention.


More tales of folk volunteering (perhaps just on Twitter for some) in Ukraine… including James Vasquez from Connecticut again:


Meanwhile, Russkies complain about the crappy quality of their forces:


Further… Russky unit that took Chernobyl (without protective gear or being told it was icky) now seriously ill:


Their brilliant commanders had them digging defensive positions in radiation contaminated soil.


And they looted “cool” radioactive stuff to take with them on the way out, too… you can’t make this up:

Assaulting a Police Station? sounds as brilliant as doing the same to a Gun Shop.


Like this ?

It’s age-restricted for some damn reason. My b. “Paraguay gun store shoot out”. For some reason I can’t find enbeddable link… odd

Ooh, one of those dangerous single action pistols that shoot people all on their own with no human input. Alec Baldwin is Exhibit A.
