Bodycam Footage of Vallejo Police Shooting Knife Wielding Trespasser



** (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) **
A Vallejo police officer shot a trespasser who threatened the officer’s safety by advancing with a brandished knife, police said. On January 6th, 2019 at around 8:30 a.m. (Could be p.m., conflicting time in news reports), officers responded to a trespassing call in the 400 block of Nebraska St. Officers Hollis and Hendrix speak to the 911 caller on-scene. They search the property and find a hole in the side of the storage shed but find no sign of the trespasser. They continue to search the property and spot the suspect now identified as 49-year-old Edward Gonzales emerging from behind a portable building. As officers located Gonzales and tried to detain him, he produced a knife. The officers ordered Gonzales multiple times to put down the weapon, but the suspect didn’t comply.

He fled the property shortly after. Officers engaged in a pursuit, up until Gonzales met a dead end at a locked gateway. At that point Gonzales turned and advanced toward officer Hendrix with the knife held in a threatening position. Officer Hendrix shot his firearm at Gonzales, fearing for immediate safety. Several other officers arrive on-scene and use bolt cutters to provide access to paramedics. In the meantime, officers provide medical aid. Gonzales was transported to North Bay Hospital where he was treated and survived. Gonzales is charged with assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, brandishing a deadly weapon to resist or prevent arrest, resisting arrest, and trespassing.

  1. Junkie Nation, this kind of system is not working why???? They take this man who is a drug addict to the hospital to trying to save his life who's paying the bill!!!! We are The people!!! In the 50s people did not behave like that they did not use the amount the drugs they using now !!! We need to stop this!!! Find a way how to behave proper as Society or will become a Zombie Nation!!!!!

  2. I just want cops shoot in legs and hands if the treat is not a matter of quick reaction like reaching gun. Like this man who was on the pocket of cops as he's old, and slow reflex !

  3. First two shots are justified but 3rd n 4th shots were totally unwarranted since the threat turned away after the first 2 shots, and those follow up shits possibly could end up being the kill shots.
    Not necassary. First off you never get the close to the perp, 2nd you take 2 shots (double tap) and reassess the threat. I'm just saying

  4. Comply and fight it in court later possibly getting case dismiss BUT dont comply, get lead, loss of blood, and lose in court. Seems fair.

  5. Poverty and hopelessness brings a huge number of people in the United States to the desire to die. It’s easier for policemen to kill a man than to help him. No man – no problem. The corpse will not write a complaint.

  6. Agrees with earlier comment by USNVA "Wow, he looks like a homeless person. Maybe some mental health issues going on ? Kinda sad but he didn’t leave the officer much choice."

  7. Why do they NEED to 🔫 shoot ppl all the time? I hear the 🐕..the k9 would have stop him or rubber bullets. Commenter said…see white ppl get shot by police…yea but did u hear three shots and the officer stop firing and not sure the FIRST two hit him now if he was BLACK it probably would have be ten shots or more to make sure he die. Normally we hear SEVERAL officers 🔫 a combining 20+ shots so ALL of the get to go on a paid vacation. God will hold them accountable for EVERY bullet and EVERY LIFE.

  8. Well, they say that cops never catch the highly intelligent ones. This example of stupid proves that point; stupid game and 4 stupid prizes. Good job officer. Fool was probably mental, but that was a pretty sizable knife and he was a threat to public safety for certain. The needs of the many outweighed the needs of the few/one. Good shoot.

  9. That cop was so eager and looking for an excuse to shoot him. He stood right in front of him to make it seem like he was walking towards him. And at 1:26 he tells him "look at me" to get the suspect to turn around so he could say he feared he was coming at him.
