Man fatally shot by off-duty officer in Alameda identified

 

ALAMEDA (KRON) — The 19 year-old man fatally shot by an off-duty sheriff’s deputy Wednesday has been identified.

Marquez Warren of Vallejo was shot during an alleged home invasion robbery, according to police.

The off-duty officer, identified as Deputy Vedder Li, was hired by the sheriff’s office last year, police said.

Officers responded to a call of a home invasion at around  10:45 a.m. at a home in the 2000 block of Buena Vista Avenue, police said.

Warren was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries where he later died, according to Alameda Police.

The Li was not injured, police said.

Police ordered residents to shelter in place following the shooting as they searched for additional suspects.

Li was briefly placed on paid administration leave in connection with the incident but is no longer on leave, according to Alameda Police.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for Warren’s family in the wake of his death.

The site raised nearly $6,000 as of Monday morning.
