Suspect Shot & Killed During Illegal Grow Raid Near Sacramento

A Fish and Wildlife officer shot and killed an armed man today during the raid of an illegal marijuana grow in Sacramento County. Multiple state agencies were involved in the raid — clearly, since I’m pretty sure this is the first time a Fish and Wildlife “officer” has ever fired a gun at a human (on duty).

Police were conducting the raid at the Cosumnes River Preserve in Elk Grove when they spotted a man brandishing a handgun. When the man pointed the gun at the Fish and Wildlife officer, the officer fired first, killing the man.

The grow is said to have had hundreds of marijuana plants, and was only accessible by boat.
