A man who was shot and killed by police in Citrus Heights, after reportedly firing a gun at officers Monday night, has been identified.
The Sacramento County Coroner’s office said the man was 64-year-old Citrus Heights resident Bruce Allan Shumaker.
Police were called to the area of Garry Oak Drive and Twin Oaks Ave in Citrus Heights Monday, for a neighbor dispute.
When they arrived, Shumaker pointed a gun at officers. Police fired at Shumaker but did not hit him. He then ran into his home and barricaded himself for several hours.
Later in the evening, officers confronted Shumaker in his backyard where they say he again pointed a gun at them and fired. Officers shot him and he died. No one else was inside the residence. No officers were injured.
