San Diego, California — On Wednesday, April 26, 2023, at 7:23 p.m., the San Diego Sheriff’s Department Communications Center received a call from a male reporting that his roommate had picked up a bedframe and threatened to kill another roommate at a residence in the 3600 block of South Barcelona Street. The caller also mentioned that the suspect may be experiencing mental issues. Deputies from the Rancho San Diego substation were dispatched to the call. Upon arriving, they evacuated three residents of the home and spoke with them. They confirmed that the suspect, who lives at the residence, had brandished the metal bedframe at two of them and threatened to kill everyone in the house. Deputies determined there was probable cause to arrest the suspect for brandishing a weapon and criminal threats.
Deputies located the suspect in a bathroom in the residence. He was still armed with the metal bedframe and held it in front of him pointed at the deputies. He refused to exit the bathroom and made rambling statements including telling deputies to “shoot.” Deputies brought less lethal resources to the scene including a canine officer and a taser. The Psychiatric Emergency Response Team was also on scene to assist. Deputies negotiated with the suspect for approximately fifteen minutes repeatedly asking him to drop the metal bedframe. At that point, deputies moved closer to the bathroom where a deputy deployed his taser. The taser struck the suspect but was ineffective.
The suspect then quickly ran out of the bathroom, charging towards the deputies in the hallway with the metal bedframe held over his head in both hands. One of the deputies shot multiple rounds from his department-issued firearm. The rounds struck the suspect, who fell to the ground. Deputies immediately began rendering life- saving aid. Paramedics responded and transported the suspect to a local hospital for treatment. The suspect was taken to a hospital and is in stable but serious condition. No deputies were injured in the shooting. The suspect in this case has been identified as 45-year-old Santo Marac. On May 1, 2023, he was arraigned in the hospital for assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of criminal threats, and resisting arrest with violence.

I do not feel like the level of force used was justified. Definitely did not have to use lethal immediately. However, I do acknowledge that I am looking at this from an outside perspective, and that the officers are going to be high on adrenaline, therefor making decisions that are the easiest to process.
He's charging at the officer with the part of the frame like a spear. Unjustified my ass
If you have a person having "mental" issues and you call the cops, that person will be shot. Never fails.
= MURDER… again!
California loves killing their mentally ill, like they’re sweep all their problem under a rug
Look I’m all for good police, but he had a bed frame. He didn’t have a knife or a gun, he had a bed frame. Is it worth killing him? You could have just walked away. He only charged after being hit with a stun gun too. Walk away or kill the man? Jeeze what a tough decision.
I don’t agree with this one folks.
He was just trying to tuck them in for the night 😂
For real these criminals are mutating and their skins are becoming more thicker and thicker. tazer is becoming so useless
Is the bedframe ok?
Lethal force turned out be to non lethal. And yall still want to ban guns lmao
Why do they keep letting these immigrants into this country only to have to deal with them on a criminal level so much of the time…leave these 3rd world savages where they are…
Bed frames are now considered as lethal weapons….LOL….COWARD DEPUTIES!
What might would have happened if officers were just to leave and keep eye on periphery? Time, sometimes, allows orderly manifestation.
Dumb ace bringing a bed frame to a gun fight
🖕🏽Nothing will ever get better, The police are trained to lie to people, this man threatened to kill his roommate he was having a mental crises! He was in trouble. How often can you tell someone they are not in trouble then put them in jail then expect them to fall for it again? Does anyone think this man believed he was not in trouble when his house was full of cops with guns? Pointed at him? We live under a government of liars and we wonder why the chaos continues to get worse. Imagine how much worse it would get if they removed the 2nd amendment and they were the only ones armed with firearms along with the criminals and the police decide who to protect and who to allow to be victims? Speak up for yourself against the only people who can protect you and they will create and environment they makes you pay! The democrat party has mastered it. It’s why they are so against the 2nd
The taser is a very effective escalator
I didn’t see any deputies with metal bed frames. They had guns.
Ban all assault bed frames.
That Bed Frame Sure Looked Like a Pump Shotgun As Fast as This Situation Unfolded 😮😮😮
Most of the “mental health crisis” in this country is passed hand-to-hand
Seems to have cured his mental health
sound like possible prison time for the cops
But but but racism….pathetic
Another example of why sometimes police need a gun instead of a taser.
Arraigned in the hospital – ☹
RID Our Cities of this Generic Dysfunctional Disposable Afro Waste!
Sounds like Milton from Office Space.
I don't understand why you got to shoot the guy five times and then handcuffed him I just don't get it
Shot for charging with a bed frame!!!!!! Really!!!!
On this episode of cops see who wins bed frame VS Glock
Really appreciate the calm clear communication after shots were fired, to get medical on the way and to render aid to him.
"You think you win with a gun? You've obviously never seen a bed frame samurai."
Someone needs to invent a more effective less lethal weapon. Maybe a taser with more penetrating power, some weight behind the barbs
Did anyone else not understand a single word the guy said?
Crazy how america deals with mentally unstable people that need help
I think he was on that f*** around and find out
Cops stopped shooting too soon…
Three ounces of lead trumps ten pounds of steel.
Schizophrenia, recently it was announced that excessive marijuana consumption causes it. Hmm probably on antidepressants too
To think that you'll get the better against four guns pointed at you is already insane to start with.
I think I've seen this sword in Elden Ring .
Not that anybody is listening/reading but from a perps point of view multiple LEOs shouting at once has just got to add to the confusion.
A gun is definitely stronger then a metal frame wtf lol they supposed be trained to take it away from him without using there guns
🎶dumb ways to die🎶 bleeps will be bleeps
So happy to see them immediately rendering aide!
Edit: anyone cheering this or any shooting on this channel is unchristian and should reevaluate your elation
