Citrus Heights police responded to an officer-involved shooting at a Greenback Lane apartment complex, Monday.

Citrus Heights police said four officers responding to a domestic violence incident at a Greenback Lane apartment complex shot and killed a 35-year-old man Monday night, after the suspect allegedly fired at officers.

Although “countless officers” responded to the scene from multiple agencies, Citrus Heights Police Lt. Ryan Kinnan said the shooting involved four officers firing their guns at the man. Those officers will be placed on administrative leave — a standard department procedure for officer-involved shootings, according to Kinnan.

The shooting occurred at an apartment complex located near San Juan Avenue on the 7500 block of Greenback Lane. Police said no officers were injured in the incident, but the suspect’s wife sustained injuries from being “hit and struck.”
