On June 11th, 2021 at approximately 10:17 a.m., Monterey Police Officers were dispatched to the 300 block of Tyler Street regarding a report of a male inside a parking garage brandishing a handgun. A witness reported the subject was standing on the upper floor of a parking garage and pointing a handgun at pedestrians on a sidewalk below him. All Monterey Police officers on duty responded to the parking garage and surrounding areas and searched for the subject for over an hour. The MPD worked with other City of Monterey employees, State Parks and adjacent law enforcement agencies. The search included a very strategic and deliberate search of the two garage structures and surrounding areas. As would be expected, the MPD deployed a number of tactical tools to address a potential issue of a subject with a gun in a highly populated area. NEWS RELEASE IN PDF
