California’s Silicon Valley police released this weekend new details about an extended shootout in which an armed suspect stole a car.

According to Milpitas Police Department, the suspect was identified as Michael Nelson (42). He sustained severe injuries after being struck by police bullets and died four days later. 

After spotting the vehicle he was driving and reporting it stolen, police tried to stop him. 

Surveillance footage shows Nelson driving in a vehicle boxed by two officers at a shopping mall. Police say Nelson tried to get out of the car, but saw officers. He then got back in the car, and grabbed a gun.

The shootout erupted when several officers ordered the man to give up his weapon. 

Let me look at your hands. Gun, gun, gun! One officer can be heard uttering “shots fired” on the bodycam footage. 

A PORTLAND POLICY SEARCHING IS ON FOR TWO SUBJECTS WHO FIRE MULTIPLE ROUNDS AT THE OFFICERS.

Milpitas police claimed that Nelson fired his gun, however, they believe that a Milpitas officer was responsible for firing the weapon after Nelson left the car with the gun. 

Police brought several resources, including a drone and K-9 units, to the scene after the long exchange of gunfire. 

After approximately 45 minutes, police determined Nelson wasn’t a threat and arrived to provide medical assistance. 

Unregistered firearm with green skull design was also found on the scene. 

Milpitas Chief Jared Hernandez, a police officer said that “the body-worn cam video will demonstrate how quickly enforcement stops can turn into violent encounters.” The video was released by the department. 

We understand that the use of force can cause the death of a person. This is why we offer support to their families and the officers.
