Man in Custody after Shooting Incident With Sacramento Police Officer

A suspect is in custody at the Sacramento County Jail this evening after he was involved in shooting incident with a Sacramento Police Department officer.

This afternoon at 1:13 p.m., the Sacramento Police Department received a report of a suspect in his twenties, accompanied by a detailed physical description walking down the street with a gun in his hand near 20th Avenue and 36th Street. Additional information was obtained that the subject, later identified as Clifton Allison, 26, appeared to have been in an altercation and had a ripped shirt. 

Patrol officers were immediately dispatched to the call and responded. Two additional officers assigned to the department’s Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) were in the area when they overheard the call being dispatched over the radio.  

Due to the proximity of the call, they responded to the area to assist patrol officers. These officers were in an unmarked sedan, wearing marked “Police” tactical uniforms when they arrived at the call.

Upon arrival, they observed Allison in the area of 38th Street and 20th Avenue and officers attempted to contact him. The suspect allegedly fled on foot to evade officers.  

One of the officers chased the suspect on foot, the other pursued him in a vehicle.  The officer gave verbal commands for the suspect to drop the gun.  

Instead, the suspect produced the handgun and pointed it at the officer. In response, the officer fired a total of five rounds at the suspect, none of which struck him.  

Once the shots were fired, the suspect continued to run to a nearby yard on 38th Street and surrendered to officers.  Officers approached the suspect and safely took him into custody without incident.  

Once in custody, officers located a loaded silver revolver in the immediate proximity of the suspect. (see photo above). Allison was booked into the Sacramento County Jail on various charges including assault with a deadly weapon, felon in possession of a firearm and an outstanding misdemeanor warrant. 

The officer, whose identity was not released, has 10 years on the department. None of the officers involved were injured in this incident.  

Per department policy, the officer involved in the shooting has been placed on paid administrative leave.
