BODYCAM: Man Gets Shot As He Charges Toward Officer With a Knife in CA

Crescent City, California — The Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office (DNSO) is releasing the body-worn camera (BWC) footage of the officer-involved shooting of 38-year-old Robert Anderson. The incident began at approximately 2:45 p.m. on August 25, 2021 when the Crescent City California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers and Del Norte County Sheriff's Department (DNCSO) deputies responded to the scene of a disabled vehicle that was blocking the roadway at Parkway Drive and Sherwood Lane in Crescent City, CA. Upon their arrival, they located Anderson holding a knife and walking in the traffic lanes.

Body camera footage shows the officer who joins a group of officers already around Anderson, standing at the side of the road. At that time Anderson is unarmed but close by is a knife on the ground. The officers attempt to get Anderson to move away from the knife. Anderson refuses and talks to a woman who is off camera. Then in one swift move he scoops up the knife and charges toward the officer. Anderson was shot by officers during the incident. Officers performed first aid until Del Norte Ambulance arrived. Anderson’s gunshot wounds proved fatal. No officers or civilians were injured during the incident.
