Stockton Police Officer Jimmy Inn, 30, was shot and killed May 11th near the front door of the home where he was responding to a domestic violence call.
Police said Inn went to the area after a domestic violence report around 9:45 a.m. Inn arrived there around 10:07 a.m. and knocked on the door before standing off to the side.
A voice came from inside the home and said, “Hey, police” before that person, later identified as 30-year-old Lance Lowe, fired a gun multiple times at Inn, police said.
Police said another officer, Pancho Freer, who was in a vehicle nearby, arrived and spotted Lowe standing over Inn while holding a gun. Lowe shot at Freer before he returned gunfire. Lowe then briefly entered the home and returned moments later, holding his 8-year-old son.
The man refused to listen to the officer’s commands and was strangling his son when a bystander tackled Lowe, allowing for the officer to shoot him, police said.
Both Inn and the Lowe were transported to a hospital, where they died of their injuries, police said. Lowe’s son was medically cleared later in the evening and returned to his mother.
Officer Inn hired by the Stockton Police Department in December 2015. He was assigned to the Field Operations Division and was also a member of the Stockton police Honor Guard.
Officer Inn leaves behind a wife, who is also a Stockton police officer, and three kids, a 7-month-old son, a 12-year-old stepdaughter and a 14-year-old stepson.
