Jul 13, 2017

Grover Beach police shot and killed a man on Wednesday night in an altercation on Brighton Avenue.

In a statement issued Thursday morning by Grover Beach police chief John Peters, the identities of the man and the officers involved is not being released during an internal investigation.

According to the department’s account, around 10:15 p.m., a 9-1-1 call reported a man was outside a home in the 1000 block making a “disturbance.” The man didn’t live at the home, and when a police team arrived, they say he was armed with a “large blunt object,” and charged them.
