UPDATED: Suspect shot, killed in Elk Grove Police officer involved shooting

A suspect was killed late last night in an Elk Grove Police officer-involved shooting. The shooting took place at the Holiday Inn Express hotel on West Stockton Boulevard in Elk Grove just before midnight.

KCRA reports that the male suspect had stolen a friend's vehicle and was encountered in the hotel lobby by police officers after allegedly becoming angry with a clerk when informed there were no rooms available. The suspect is reported to have been intoxicated.

After police attempted to tase the suspect, he brandished a firearm and ran through the hotel. One of the responding officers fired their weapon.

The suspect succumbed to the gunshot after being taken to a nearby hospital. As a policy, the officer was placed on paid administrative leave pending investigations. 

The identity of the suspect will be released by the Sacramento County Coroner. 

This is the second officer-involved shooting this month for the Elk Grove Police Department. Earlier this month, officers shot and wounded a suspect who led police on a vehicle pursuit after he allegedly killed his former girlfriend in Rancho Cordova. 

Last week the Elk Grove Police Department released a body camera video of that incident. That video can be viewed here
UPDATE, February 22

The suspect has been identified as Booker T. Pannel, 40, of Sacramento. 

Elk Grove Police will release body camera videos as specified by state law.
