• Monterey Police Officers Save Despondent Man’s Life

    On Monday November 21, 2016, at approximately 4:07 p.m., Monterey Police Officers responded to the 300 block of Glenwood Circle in Monterey on a request from neighbors to check on the welfare of an individual who had not been seen recently. A first floor apartment was flooded with water, which had originated in the second floor apartment where the individual lived.

    When officers arrived they started to look through the apartment and located writing on a mirror that indicated the subject had taken his life. They observed what appeared to be gunshots into the ceiling, which had hit a water pipe creating the water leak. 

    Officers moved toward the bathroom and observed the subject in the bathtub with a shotgun resting across his chest and an empty bottle of alcohol nearby. The officers saw that the subject was alive, but sleeping and had earplugs in. The officers made a plan to quietly move into the bathroom and remove the shotgun from the subject. Once the officers were in the bathroom and started to remove the shotgun, they observed a semi-automatic handgun in the subjects lap and simultaneous to taking control of the shotgun, took hold of the subjects hands and removed him from the bathtub so he could not gain access to the handgun.

    This situation could have resulted in a very different outcome, however these officers utilized a viable plan to deal with a very dangerous situation.
