Red Bluff Police have been cleared of wrongdoing in the shooting death of a man who was armed with a stick. On April 14th of last year at 12:20AM officers encountered 42-year-old Henry Lane of Red Bluff in the area of the Antelope Boulevard Bridge just east of Rio Street. He was told to drop the large stick he was carrying but he refused and kept walking away from the officers. They continued to order him to stop and fired multiple taser shots and beanbag rounds at him but they had no apparent effect except to cause him to turn around with the stick raised. Red Bluff Police Corporal Stephen Harper fired a single shot from his service pistol at Lane’s chest and he fell to the ground. Eventually officers retrieved gloves and emergency medical equipment and attempted to revive Lane but he was pronounced dead on arrival at Saint Elizabeth Hospital. A autopsy revealed that lane had a high level of Methamphetamine in his system. Body camera footage was later released showing part of the encounter. Following a long investigation, Tehama County District Attorney Matt Rogers has determined that the use of deadly force against lane was justified.
