Bay Area man uses baby as shield, strikes officer during domestic violence incident

An 18-year-old was taken into custody last week on suspicion of brandishing a firearm after a domestic violence incident led him to use a baby as a protective shield and to strike an officer while being detained.

Dispatch from the Fairfield Police Department received a 911 report at around 1:40 p.m. Jan. 26 that there was a man with a gun at an apartment complex in the 2400 block of Peach Tree Drive.

“Officers arrived at the scene but, upon seeing them, the man ran away and back towards the apartment the call originated from with an object in his hands,” said officials in a press release.
