Sacramento Police Officer Injured After Responding To Domestic Violence Call In North Natomas This Week

According to Sacramento Police Department spokesperson Officer Anthony Gamble, the suspect did leave the home in a vehicle. “We got a description of the vehicle, and our officers quickly located it, tried to make a traffic stop, but the vehicle did not stop,” Gamble said.

This resulted in a brief foot pursuit that ended at a home off Natomas Boulevard near Club Center Drive shortly after midnight on Monday morning.

When the suspect exited the car, he struggled with the officers, and thankfully, they were able to apprehend him without using any force, Gamble said.

According to police, they also found a loaded pistol in the car. The suspect eventually got into the back of the police car, but not before he injured an officer.

The officer is expected to be fine. Luckily, they suffered only minor injuries, Gamble said.

Just this past weekend, three police officers were killed and another injured in a shoot-out with a suspect holed up in a home in Minnesota.

Domestic violence calls are one of the most dangerous interactions for police officers, according to police statistics.

Sacramento police have increased the amount of resources they dedicate to this type of crime.

What our current chief did was re-organize the Domestic Violence or Family Abuse unit to include additional detectives. Their role is to go after those who are committing these crimes against the victims. Domestic violence has a lasting effect on families, children, and we want to remind our community members that there are no victims, and there are solutions,” Gamble said.
