Around 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 2, a woman called 911 to report a man with a gun was trying to steal her boyfriend’s motorcycle during a sale. She told the dispatcher they were in an alley but didn’t know the exact location.

“I’m scared because my son’s in the car,” the woman told the dispatcher. “Please send somebody.”

Once the location was determined, officers responded to the area of 13th Street and Palm Lane. Police quickly located the suspect, who was sitting on a motorcycle and holding a handgun.

As the two officers got out of their patrol SUV, body-cam video appears to show the man raising the gun towards them. Both officers then fire at the suspect, and he’s seen falling to the ground.

He was taken to a hospital, where he later died. He has since been identified as 27-year-old Joshua Main.

No one else was hurt.

A Glock handgun was recovered near the location where the suspect was shot. Police say there was also evidence that Main fired at least one round.

Both officers involved in the shooting are assigned to the Mountain View Precinct, with four and six years of service, respectively.

The shooting remains under investigation.
