Red Bluff Police shot a man Tuesday night. Officers were called at around 10:30PM to the Meadow Vista Apartments at 710 Vista Way on reports of an altercation. They say when they arrived they immediately came under fire by a man with a handgun, who shot an unknown number of rounds at them. An officer returned fire and struck the man. He fell to the ground but continued to hang onto the gun despite orders to drop it. Officers tried to negotiate for about an hour and a half as the man lay bleeding and then four officers used a ballistic shield to approach the man. He apparently tried to shoot the officers again and two officers shot back, inflicting fatal wounds. The dead man’s name has not been made public.
