G&A Responds to Sac State Officer Invloved Shooting Last Week

Sacramento State Police Officers were placed in an incredibly difficult situation and reacted with great compassion and restraint. On October 21, 2009, a tragedy occurred at A.R.C. Dormitory. Officers rushed to the scene to check on the safety of a young student who was severely hurting himself. When officers arrived on scene they opened the door to find a scene out of a nightmare.
One young man had beat his roommate to death with a baseball bat and subsequently attacked police officers with a large knife. Officers attempted to use less lethal force including a pepper ball gun but, after being charged at by an individual armed with a knife, officers were forced to fire their side arms in self-defense.
Given that, officers had fired their weapons in self-defense. There had to be both an administrative and potentially criminal investigation. Sacramento State Police Department contacted Goyette & Associates for assistance in representation.
Lauro Paredes, an attorney from Goyette & Associates responded within a half hour and assisted with officers over the next 8 hours as crime scene walk throughs and formal interview were conducted.
Goyette & Associates would like to give its respect to the brave officers of the Sacramento State University Police.
