UPDATE 5:25 p.m. Sunday, June 2, 2019 - Neighbors in the area reacted to the deadly officer-involved shooting that left one man dead Saturday.

Elaine Love moved into the Anderson neighborhood near the 1400 block of Lodge Pole Ave. in September and says her neighborhood is normally quiet. 

Love said she saw a man who appeared to be distraught holding up his hands in handcuffs and wasn't wearing shoes.

"I found that very unusual so I was like OK, 'Does he need help? Is he running from somebody? Did he escape somewhere?'" Love said.

After consulting her neighbor, she decided to contact Anderson's non-emergency dispatch. 

Within minutes, police were in her neighborhood leading up to what she says was a 20-25 minute standoff. 

"Officers pulled up and [drew] their weapons and kind of scared me because I’m like oh my gosh I said I’m kind of glad I did call," Love said.

She did not know whether a gun was involved.

Redding police told Action News Now on Saturday that the man brandished a gun and that’s when an officer fired one round, killing him on the scene.

Love said she hoped for a different outcome. 

"I just feel bad, like I said, [because] I know he was somebody’s child at one time and I just don’t like seeing that have to happen like that," Love said. 

Another neighbor, who wished to stay anonymous, said she’s glad Anderson police were there.

"I honestly don’t think it would’ve escalated to that if there wasn’t some type of fear of either their safety or the safety of others around them," she said.

The anonymous witness also said she has faith in the Anderson Police Department should another incident happen.

"Knowing that I have that great of a resource if anything was to happen, in a way, it’s kind of comforting," she said.

The investigation is still ongoing and multiple law enforcement agencies are looking into Saturday's officer-involved shooting.
