Rohnert Park police seek witness in officer-involved shooting

Investigators are looking for a witness to the Rohnert Park officer-involved shooting that happened in front of the police station the night of Jan. 14.

The witness was parked outside the Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety building when officers fired 11 shots at a man who, authorities say, fired a handgun in front of the police station and repeatedly asked to be killed.
