Overview Help icon

50 year-old Joseph Mann was shot and killed during a confrontation with Sacramento police on Del Paso Boulevard near Dell Street in North Sacramento after he was reportedly acting erratic and allegedly came after police officers with a knife.

Two officers killed Joseph Mann in July under questionable circumstances on Del Paso Boulevard. He had a knife.

Enhanced audio from dashcam footage that police released on Sept. 20 – after The Sacramento Bee obtained surveillance footage from a private citizen – we now know that two officers first tried to run him over.

Randy Lozoya and John Tennis, the same officers who shot Mann 14 times, gunned their police cruiser toward Mann, backed up and then drove toward him again. They stopped the car, jumped out, ran toward Mann and shot him 14 times.
