Vallejo suspect crashes during car chase, killed by police


Police activity filled Sonoma Boulevard and Tennessee Street Monday after a car chase ended when Vallejo police shot a robbery suspect.

The suspect’s injury “does not appear to be life-threatening,” according to authorities.

Authorities responded to a report of an armed robbery in the 3400 block of Sonoma Boulevard around 11:43 a.m., Vallejo police said in a news release. The suspect’s car reportedly crashed into an uninvolved vehicle near the Nation’s Giant Hamburgers.

“A foot pursuit ensued following the collision and an officer-involved shooting occurred a short time later,” police said.

A gas station employee, who declined to give his name, said he heard the sound of the crash from inside his store.

“I’m here with (the) cashier. I hear the crash – big crash, you know? said the clerk. He then heard the sound of “maybe four gunshots.”

Near Tennessee and Sonoma Monday afternoon, glass and debris were scattered near a white Toyota Yaris without a rear bumper. Law enforcement was buzzing around another damaged vehicle that was at the Marathon gas station.

A suspect sat in a police car in front of police tape at Alabama Street and Sutter Street while officers led another suspect away from the crime scene around 2:30 p.m. Police released both men later that afternoon.

The Solano County Major Crimes Task Force has taken over the investigation. Authorities said they recovered a handgun at the scene.

“The Vallejo Police Department is committed to maximum transparency in this matter and will provide more details in the near future,” police said.

It was Vallejo’s second officer-involved shooting in five months.

Last June, a police officer shot 29-year-old Jamazea Kittell in the mouth after Kittell rammed him with a car as he fled the scene of a robbery at a Springs Road gas station.
