Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 12:45am

A man shot to death by Ventura Police during a confrontation in which he hit two officers with a pickup truck is now being identified.

Ventura Police investigators say Clifford Park of Vancouver, Washington, was being evicted at a motel on the 2100 block of East Harbor Boulevard Thursday night when he broke away from them, and tried to drive away.

One officer was seriously injured, while a second escaped with minor injuries. They fired several shots, fatally wounding the 29 year old man at the scene.

Police still haven’t talked about the details of exactly what occurred.
