MONTE VISTA, Colo. — An 18-year-old man was killed during a shooting involving Monte Vista police on Tuesday.

At about 12:35 p.m., Tuesday, two officers from the Monte Vista Police Department (MVPD) responded to a home in the 1200 block of South Broadway Street for a welfare check.

When officers arrived at the home, a man confronted the officers and was armed with two knives, according to police. The 18-year-old man ran toward officers while swinging the knives, police said.

Increasing the number of knives one brings to a gunfight does not affect the outcome, but that doesn’t explain what looks like a sweatshirt covering the assailant’s head as he attacks.

Law enforcement kills California man armed with machete: police
Police attempted to negotiate with the machete wielding suspect for almost three hours before law enforcement began firing

By Mitch Picasso | Fox News
A man brandishing a machete barricaded himself in a house and held three people hostage in San Jose, California.

Police say a California man with a machete took one adult and two children as hostages and held them up in a house near a high school, KTVU reports.

Local authorities responded to the situation around 8:30 p.m. local time on Wednesday night.

“Units are currently working a hostage barricade involving an adult male armed with a machete in the 900 Block of Boynton Ave. Special operations personnel are on scene. We will provide updates as they become available,” San Jose Police tweeted.

Before the situation broke the suspect — who remains unidentified at the time of this report — called his cousin, Cassandra, and requested that she come to pick up his dog.

“He called me when everything was happening,” she told the station. “Come get the dog ‘cause I’m in trouble,” Cassandra said, according to KTVU.

“I feel in shock, because I didn’t think he would ever be doing something like that,” she continued. “He had anger issues, but I never thought he would do that.”

Law enforcement attempted to negotiate with the suspect for a few hours but were unable to get the man to surrender peaceably.

What we have heah is a failure, to communicate. Today’s links courtesy of our own Gun “Stabby” Bunny.

We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

Seems ironic, our own FA Gun Bunny bringing us two FGSs that have nothing to do with gunz.

No additional pages need to be added to the Three Ring Loose Leaf Binder of “Things To Not Bring to a Gun Fight”. We already have pages for “knife”, “two knives”, and “machete”.


To the contrary, guns are what resolved those incidents.

You can add “sweatshirt with eye holes cut out”; cuz it didn’t help him any. Just remember kiddies, drugs are a victimless crime.

I just find ’em and send ’em in, Tox. Somedays the struggle is reelz. Almost as reelz as trying to figure out how to mount a chain saw bayonet to a 12 pounder Napoleon Howitzer. Speaking of which, I’ll be giving an educational program on Old Naps to various groups this weekend upcoming. Tid bit of trivia there (pro tip 2 CW); due to the shortage of readily available brass/bronze, many of the churches donated their bells to be melted down for the casting. Pray for “those people’s” souls as their bodies are blasted to Hell.

Speaking of Hell…personal responsibility has gone there in a handbasket.

Got lost in the linky on the M38. Was only vaguely familiar with that one. Very interesting read and some knowledgeable comments. Well played there, Kid Squid, kept me busy and out of your hair for a good while.

Well, even if he hadn’t been all bundled up like that I already knew he was white; because he was referred to as a “man” of 18″ who “attacked police with several knives”, rather than as a “teen aged black male” who “only had a knife”.
