Investigators are revealing new details about a suspected carjacker killed by CHP gunfire Tuesday in the Rio Linda/Natomas area.
The suspect was identified by the Sacramento County Coroner's Office as 22-year-old Jose Roberto Leon.
Deputies say Leon was shot during some sort of fight with a CHP officer during a traffic stop. He was believed to be armed.
Leon ran off and allegedly carjacked a blue Ford Bronco. He was eventually found holed up in a home along Bridgecross Drive. Police say when Leon and others in the home refused to come out, a Sacramento Police SWAT team was called to the scene.
When officers swept the inside of the home almost two hours later, Leon was found dead inside a bedroom.
"Police are supposed to be there to help. Not let you bleed out and die, you know what I'm saying? It's not cool," a man who identified himself as Julio, Leon's cousin, told FOX40.
