Investigators: Man shot in Selma was a wanted Parolee

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Action News has acquired cell phone video showing what happened at a Selma hotel right after police shot and killed a suspect.

A resident of the Villager Inn Motel shot the video after hearing gunshots. Officers can clearly be heard yelling at a woman who was in the room with 32-year-old Clayton Cass.

Fresno County Sheriff's investigators are looking into the officer-involved shooting. They say Cass was a wanted parolee out of Tulare County. That agency asked Selma Police to find Cass.

An employee at the motel said Cass checked into his room around 10:30 Saturday night, and police were knocking on his door just an hour later.

The two officers who opened fire on Cass are on paid leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
