On April 18, 2023, a deputy involved shooting occurred in the Eureka area. When we have a critical incident, we want to release as much information as possible as soon as the investigation allows. Today we are able to share with our community a critical incident video which includes an overview of the April 18th incident and corresponding video.
We previously stated that the responding deputies did not activate their body worn cameras and therefore, no video of the incident was taken. During the investigation, one body worn camera video capturing a portion of this critical incident was located. It is being shared with our community today.
No additional body worn camera video has been located.
The below linked video contains graphic images and explicit language that may be disturbing to some viewers. This video is not suitable for children. Viewer discretion advised.
