Around 12:38 a.m., officers responded to numerous calls of a party in the 1700 block of Sacramento Street, police said.
Police say “Several subjects were reported to be fighting with weapons. A female was also reported to be yelling for help.”
Upon arrival, officers found two people involved in a physical fight.
The Vallejo man was attacking a 16-year-old boy from Union City, who was on the ground on his back.
The man was holding a knife, and deemed a “lethal threat,” according to authorities.
Police say an officer realized the severity of the threat, and fired his gun several times.
The 21-year-old Vallejo man was later pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.
His name is being withheld until further notice.
