An off-duty UCPD sergeant allegedly shot and killed an armed robber Sunday morning at Nation’s Giant Hamburgers in San Pablo, as first reported by NBC Bay Area.

After the sergeant had fired one shot, the suspect was taken to a hospital where they were later pronounced dead, according to NBC.

The sergeant has since been placed on administrative leave per UCPD policy, according to UCPD spokesperson Sabrina Reich.

“The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office is leading the investigation, and UCPD, as well as the campus administration are fully cooperating with the investigative process,” Reich said in an email.
