Investigation into officer-involved shooting in Merced underway

Crime

Merced Police and Sheriff’s Office officials were on scene of an officer-involved shooting in the area of  Sydney Lane and Lopes Avenue in Merced Tuesday night.

Neighbors said the police activity started with a slow-speed chase in the area. The vehicle being pursued eventually crashed through a garage door. 

The neighbors heard at least five gunshots around 8 p.m. in the area the car had crashed.

They said cops were called to a domestic disturbance at the same house roughly two weeks ago. 

Officials on scene confirmed shots were fired, but said they are not releasing any other information at this time.
