Police Shoot Gunman After He Spray Paints Genitals on Car

Police in Oakland, California shot a gunman after a bizarre standoff, CBS San Francisco reports.

Officials got a report about an apparent sniper Friday, and helicopter video reportedly caught the gunman shooting out of a home’s window. The suspect left the house, and spray-painted apparent eyes on a neighbor’s garage doors.


This man then spray-painted genitals on a nearby car, and walked into a backyard.

He later allegedly fired shots at a fence and the helicopter, and was shot after a SWAT team arrived. Police have yet to announce his condition, only using words like “detained.”

Update – Feb. 17, 1:30 p.m.: Added a video showing the car graffiti.

Update – 1:49 p.m.: Added a tweet from the California Highway Patrol.
