A 39 year old detective sergeant serving an arrest warrant at a downtown Seaside business didn’t have a chance to exercise the warrant before bullets were coming at him from the person he was supposed to take into custody. The officer went down, but his partner opened fire on the assailant and hit him.
The as yet unidentified gunman was rushed to a local hospital where he was undergoing treatment for gunshot wounds. The officer he shot died of his wounds. He had been with the Seaside Police Department for 13 years.
