Man dies in officer-involved shooting
Madera Police Officers responded to a call of a man with a gun acting erratically near Ellis and Merced streets.
MPD officers encountered the man with the gun and attempted to de-escalate the situation and bring the situation to a peaceful end Saturday night.
The armed man did not respond favorably to these attempts, and an officer involved shooting occurred.
Life saving measures were given, but the man succumbed to his injuries. MPD officers were not injured during this incident.
Per standard operating procedure the officers were placed on administrative leave and the investigation was turned over to the Madera County Sheriff’s Office.
