BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Bakersfield Police released new details on Monday about the officer-involved shooting Saturday night.
On Saturday, Nov. 4, a shooting took place in the 700 block of R Street that left a man suffering from several gunshot wounds, BPD said. When officers responded, they learned information to believe Augustus Crawford, 20, was a suspect in the shooting.
Later that night, BPD officers found Crawford in the passenger seat of a car near South H Street and Planz Road. The firearm used in the shooting earlier that night had not been located, so officers believed Crawford was armed with a firearm.
