REDDING, Calif. - Redding police officers arrested convicted felon Gentry Ching for burglary, gun charges, hurting a police K-9 and threatening officers.

At 7 p.m. Friday, May 24, a man said someone came into his home on Cedars Road in Redding and stole a loaded shotgun.

Police searched for three hours without the use of a CHP helicopter because of the tornado warning that was in effect in the area.

By 10 p.m. officers saw the tactical light of the stolen shotgun and when they began to approach Ching, of Redding, he raised the shotgun at the officers.

That is when K-9, Otto, got the gun away from him and Ching was booked into the Shasta County jail.
