Richmond police officer shot, killed in Vallejo home

An off-duty Richmond police officer was fatally shot at a home in Vallejo this morning, Richmond police and neighbors said.

Vallejo police this morning cordoned off Narragansett Court in the Glen Cove neighborhood where the shooting occurred.

A neighbor who did not want to provide her name said she heard yelling around 4:30 a.m. at 35 Narragansett Court, then banging and a gunshot.

She said the person shot was a “kind” man who held events for foster children in the community. Richmond police Lt. Andre Hill confirmed the person shot was an off-duty officer from Richmond but did not provide more details.
