A West Sacramento man who was shot by a police officer when he reportedly tried to grab the officer's gun during a domestic dispute late Monday is in police custody and recovering at a local hospital.
West Sacramento Police did not release the name of the 43-year-old man Tuesday, but said the man faces numerous felonies in connection with the incident.
Officers were called about 10:45 p.m. to a home in the 800 block of Platinum Lane near Tower Bridge on a suspected domestic dispute, police officials said.
Some time after officers responded, police say the man rushed an officer and tried to take his handgun. The man was shot once and taken to a local hospital, with what West Sacramento police spokesman Sgt. Nathan Steele called non-life-threatening injuries.
The officer who fired the weapon was not hurt in the exchange, Steele said. The officer, in his third year on the force, has been placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation by West Sacramento detectives, internal affairs officials and crime scene investigators.
