On August 3rd, 2014, Jacorey Calhoun (23) was shot in the head and killed by a sheriff's deputy while running away after his car was identified as that used during a home invasion that happened on July 12th. Calhoun was unarmed. The shooting is under investigation.
Here is the incident according to SFGate:
"The incident began about 4 a.m. Sunday when Oakland police tried to stop Calhoun in a silver 2001 Volvo near 55th and Fairfax avenues in East Oakland. The Volvo was connected to a home-invasion robbery July 12 on the 4700 block of MacArthur Boulevard, during which a resident was pistol-whipped, said Officer Johnna Watson, an Oakland police spokeswoman. The suspect refused to stop and fled east on San Leandro Street before he ran from the car near 105th and Edes avenues and disappeared, police said. They requested assistance from a sheriff's K-9 deputy because fog prevented the police helicopter from flying overhead, Watson said. About 5:50 a.m., the suspect was spotted moving in a yard. 'Hey, somebody just jumped over west, to the west yard. Is that one of you guys?' an officer asked on the Oakland police radio. Another officer replied, 'Hold still. I think he's working his way - just hold the air. And a male black - he's actually fleeing.' At least seven gunshots could then be heard as the deputy opened fire. 'Shots fired!' an officer reported."
