The Stockton Police Department said a man who broke into a Stockton group home Tuesday afternoon was shot and killed by officers.
PAtrick Wetter, was described by police as a 25-year-old documented gang member. He was recently arrested twice for possessing a bladed weapon and resisting arrest.
Officer Joe Silva said the department was called at 3:41 p.m. regarding a man who appeared to be intoxicated or under the influence of drugs in front of a residence in the 800 block of Howard Street, just west of Interstate 5.
The man then kicked in the front door of the residence and went inside. The residents barricaded themselves inside the bedroom.
Silva said the suspect was inside the group home when two officers with a K9 arrived at the scene. Officers ordered the suspect to stop and surrender and when he did not comply they deployed the K9.
