Man Shot by Police for Illegally Riding Bicycle

Police in El Cajon shot a man illegally riding his bicycle on a sidewalk Friday morning. 

The shooting happened at about 9:30 a.m. on Walter Way and Main Street, according to the El Cajon Police Department. 

Police said a man was riding his bike on the sidewalk, which is against municipal code. An officer attempted to pull him over, and the man appeared to be evading officers by pulling into the parking lot of a car dealership.

When police caught up with him, police said the man put his hands in his waistband. He was told to show his hands but didn't.
