    Officer involved shooting

    We had an officer involved shooting in my home town today. A 75 year old male went into a Dr. office this morning with a shot gun upset over his wifes death. He hit one of the lab tech's in the head with the gun before he was gunned down by local officers. Please keep the officer's who were involved in this incident, and the staff who had to see all this in yor thought and prayers...

    The only other physical injury was to the lab tech who was hit in the head with the gun stock, but that was a minor injury and they are home resting

    Armed man shot to death in Ridgecrest hospital office building

    ASSOCIATED PRESS
    8:36 p.m. July 30, 2007
    RIDGECREST A 75-year-old man walked into a Mojave Desert medical building Monday and started shooting before he was killed by a highway patrolman, authorities said.
    The man fired one shot on the grounds of Ridgecrest Regional Hospital and entered a medical office building where he fired several other shots, police Chief Mike Avery told a news conference.

    The man also hit a female employee with the butt of his gun after entering the building, Ann Kapernick, a hospital administrator, told the Bakersfield Californian.

    Employees and patients escaped through the back door, Kapernick said.

    Ridgecrest police, California Highway Patrol officers and Kern County sheriff's deputies responded and formed teams to find the shooter.

    Officers told the man to drop his shotgun, but he refused and pointed it at them, authorities said.

    The man was shot and killed by CHP Officer Brad Degeus, a six-year veteran, said Paul Salazar of the CHP.

    The man died immediately. The condition of the female employee hit with the gun was not immediately known. No other injuries were reported.

    The man has not been identified. Kapernick said he had previously visited the clinic.

    Ridgecrest is about 110 miles north of Los Angeles, near the sprawling Naval Air Weapons Station at China Lake.

    Thats the one... Brad is a great guy, and this is not easy for him to be going through.. Please keep him and his family in your prayers!

    The suspect was pointing the gun at a long time detective with Ridgecrest PD, telling him he was going to kill him when Brad shot and killed him
