One Person Dead, Two Police Officers Injured Following Confrontation In Ventura

Posted on Friday, March 15, 2013 12:46am

A man is dead, and two police officers were injured in a confrontation at a Ventura motel.

Ventura Police were called to the Motel 6 on the 2100 block of Harbor Boulevard around 7 p.m. last night by a request to help evict someone.

Officers say arrived at the motel, and found the man, but as they started to escort him out of the complex, he escaped and jumped into a pickup truck.

The officers started chasing the truck on foot. While the sequence of what happened next is still unclear, but the truck hit the officers, and shots were fired by one, or both of the officers.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. His name hasn’t been released yet. The injuries to the officers weren’t life threatening.
