Man Shot By Officer In Red Bluff, Taken To Hospital With Non-Life Threatening Injuries

A man was shot by a Red Bluff Police Officer as he was firing a shotgun into his ex-girlfriends home, according to Red Bluff Police. Officers were called to the 1400 block of Madison Street at about 4:51AM on Wednesday morning after receiving a 911 call from a woman reporting that her ex-boyfriend, 28-year-old Carlos Villalobos, was outside of her residence. Officers were unable to locate Villalobos or anyone else outside the residence. Officers received a 2nd 911 call at about 7:30AM reporting that Villalobos was again at the woman’s home and was banging on the front door. Officers arrived within minutes, and reportedly saw Villalobos armed with a shotgun. Red Bluff Police say that as the officer engaged Villalobos he fired several rounds from the shotgun into the front window of the home. At about same time, the officer fired several rounds from his service weapon at the suspect who was struck at least twice. Medical personnel were called and Villalobos was taken to Saint Elizabeth Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. No one else was injured in the shooting. The officer has been placed on administrative leave, and the case is being investigated by Tehama County District Attorney Bureau of Investigation.
