The Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety said they are looking for 20-year-old Shawn Lamont Brown of Fresno in connection to a deadly officer-involved shooting incident.

Authorities say Brown has an outstanding warrant in connection to a Fresno County homicide. They believe he has fled the Sunnyvale area.

Another suspect, 24-year-old Raymond Deshawn Hackett Jr. of Fresno, was arrested in the incident. Hackett had a $50,000 warrant out of San Diego County for domestic violence related charges. He was arrested and booked into the Santa Clara County Jail.

Around 4:15 Saturday afternoon, someone called police to report suspicious activity near a Motel 6. Captain Shawn Ahearn says when officers approached a vehicle, two suspects began running.

An 18-year veteran with Sunnyvale's Department of Public Safety shot one of the suspects, who was pronounced dead on the scene despite life-saving measures. He has been identified as 23-year-old Allen Matthew Baker III of San Diego.

Investigators said the officer ordered the suspect to drop the weapon multiple times. The suspect failed to comply and began to point the gun at the officer. The officer fired nine rounds at the suspect.

"Through the investigation, we have found a firearm next to his body and an additional firearm in the backpack that he was carrying," Ahearn said.

Ahearn said one was a loaded high-capacity magazine and the other was a handgun.

Sunnyvale DPS officers do not have body cameras, according to Ahearn. He says the officers involved were not hurt.

"I was scared because I was alone," Motel 6 guest Andrea Lara said. "I just heard some gunshots and I looked out and then I saw a lot of police out here."

Detectives are continuing their investigation into the case and determine all of the facts surrounding the circumstances of what happened. Anyone with information related to this investigation can contact the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety at (408) 730-7110.
