More details emerge in Modesto shooting involving two officers and suspect


Modesto police department released more details on a shooting that left one suspect dead on Thursday, Dec. 17.

Heather Graves, the department's spokesperson, said that at 2:10 p.m. two Modesto officers tried to stop a man on the bike, who fled from them into a parking garage off 10th Street.

When officers approached the suspect, he pulled out a loaded .44 caliber handgun from his waistband and failed to comply with the officers' orders to drop the gun.

Several shots were fired by by both officers, according to Graves. Medical crews performed CPR on the suspect while he was transported to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries.

The suspect was later identified as 24-year-old Christopher Fletcher, who required the highest level of supervision through the Stanislaus County Probation Department, Graves said.

It’s Over. Say Goodbye. Get out and MOVE

It’s Over. Say Goodbye. Get out and MOVE

You heard me. Put it down. You don’t need that last Milky Way. No seriously, you don’t. Will one more kill you? No. But you don’t need it. Step away. Throw it away. Like deep down in the trash so you aren’t tempted to dig it out later in a moment of weakness. Is it in there? Deep down? Good. Now get out of the house and go for a walk. Crisis adverted.

You’re welcome.

I think we can officially welcome Autumn at this point since it doesn’t appear it will hit 90 degrees again in the coming weeks. So welcome beautiful cool, crisp, air. Bright, deep, gorgeous fall colors, and every holiday that center’s around eating. We here at Mama Bootcamp welcome you with open arms. (notice I did not say open mouths?) but open arms yes, because it is the most wonderful time of the year!
