Man on probation shot after allegedly trying to flee Roseville police

Roseville police are investigating an officer-involved shooting in which a man on probation was injured early Friday.

An officer on routine patrol notified dispatchers at 1:18 a.m. that he was contacting a man on foot on Sunrise Avenue at Frances Drive. The man, who was on probation and whom the officer knew from previous contact, ran east on Frances Drive, according to a Police Department news release. The officer chased the man and, during a subsequent confrontation, the officer fired his service gun, striking the suspect in a foot, police said.

The officer apprehended the suspect, identified as 42-year-old Anthony Connally, and immediately called for medical aid. Connally was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, where he was treated and then released to police custody. He was booked into Placer County jail on suspicion of felony probation violation and resisting arrest.

The shooting will be investigated by the Roseville Police Department and, in keeping with county protocol, the investigation will be monitored by the Placer County District Attorney’s Office. The officer, who has worked for the department for almost four years, was not injured and has been placed on paid administrative leave, in keeping with standard practice in such situations, police said.
