TURLOCK – An investigation is underway in Turlock after an officer-involved shooting Wednesday morning.

The Turlock Police Department confirmed they were investigating the incident along the 900 block of Vermont Avenue.

Officers initially responded to a report of a suspicious person looking into vehicles shortly before 5:30 a.m. The suspect ran when an officer approached him, and when a second officer attempted to get him to comply, he "presented an object in a threatening manner," police said.

That is when an officer shot the suspect in the right shoulder. He was taken to the hospital and has since been released and booked into jail.

He was later identified as 37-year-old Turlock resident Corey Pollard. Pollard faces charges of resisting arrest and assaulting a peace officer.

Turlock police did not say what the object in Pollard's possession was, but it was recovered from the scene.

No officers were injured.

Roadways were blocked in the immediate area for the investigation but reopened sometime around 11:30 a.m.
