The Shasta County Coroner's Officer has announced that the man shot and killed by Redding police Thursday night was 32-year-old Erik Charles Lebak of Redding.
The incident happened on the 2000 block of Fig Tree Lane, just south of the Redding airport. Two Shasta County Sheriff's Deputies were dispatched there just after 8p.m. for reports of a suicidal subject.
According to the Redding Police Department, Lebak was armed with a shotgun and a handgun. Lebak fired the shotgun in close proximity to the two deputies, and the deputies returned fire, hitting and killing Lebak.
An autopsy has been scheduled for next week.
