  • Police officer: 'If you see him, just hit him with a baseball bat a couple times'

    In dashcam video released late Tuesday by the Sacramento Police Department, two officers search for Dazion Flenaugh after he ran off from them and through backyards in south Sacramento. At one point, an officer tells a bystander that Flenaugh is "some nut, tweak, just freaking out" before suggesting that hitting Flenaugh with a bat could "mellow him out." Flenaugh swung a pickax at one resident's door. He was shot dead by police about 17 minutes after this video; police said he had two knives in his hand.

  • Watch Sacramento fire crews battle suspicious boat fire

    The crew from Sacramento Fire Department Engine 20 battles a fire Monday night that consumed two boats that were being stored in a lot behind a chain-link fence on Selma Street. Crews forced entry to the yard to keep the fire contained to the two boats. The fire is suspicious in nature and under investigation, the fire department said.
