This afternoon we received several 911 calls from concerned residents reporting that a man was shooting a gun in the area of Bueno and Linda Vista.
When our officers and deputies from the Napa County Sheriff’s Department arrived on scene, the man began shooting at us as he was driving away from a residence. To protect ourselves, and the greater public, our officers fired their service weapons fatally wounding the man.
An area school was placed on lock down, but that has been lifted. No one else was injured in the incident. Anytime a life is lost, it is tragic. Our thoughts are with the man’s family as the investigation into what happened continues.
