Suspect Shot & Killed During 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.
