Homicide suspect shot after opening fire on Pinole police officer

A Pinole police officer shot a homicide suspect after the man fired multiple shots at the officer, authorities said.

The police dispatch received a report of a disturbance that began as a family dispute at a residence in the 1100 block of Encina Avenue on Thursday afternoon, authorities said. Responding officers later learned that a shooting had occurred and the suspect, 25-year-old Jeramy Dorsey, was running away from the scene. 

Dorsey confronted the officers upon their arrival and fired multiple shots at an officer but missed, according to the original police statement released on Thursday. However, in the update released on Friday afternoon, police have determined the suspect fired only one shot at the officer, upon reviewing body-worn camera footage. 

Police said the officer pursued Dorsey on foot and gave commands to the weapon multiple times before returning fire and shooting him. Dorsey was treated at the scene and was transferred to the hospital. As of Friday afternoon, he was in critical but stable condition.
