The man killed by a Santa Rosa police officer Saturday morning while allegedly holding a 12-inch kitchen knife has been identified, officials said. Officers from the Santa Rosa Police Department were called to a multifamily home on the 2400 block of West Steele Lane in Santa Rosa just before 6 a.m. Saturday on reports that someone was acting erratically in the house. Responding officers found Garcia hiding under a mattress holding a 12-inch kitchen knife and tried to use pepper spray and a stun gun to subdue him without success, the Sheriff’s Office reported. The investigation by the Sheriff’s Office found that Santa Rosa police tried to negotiate with Garcia, but he moved toward them with the knife, and one officer shot him several times. The name of the police officer involved in the shooting has not been released.
