SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A Chico man who had been released from the Butte County Jail due to overcrowding was shot and killed Friday by a Sacramento police officer after he shot a police dog.

Sacramento police identified the man as Lucus Webb, 33, according to the Sacramento Bee.

Webb was facing nine years in prison for the charge of carrying a dirk or dagger along with prior prison sentences and a strike, Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey said today. The Butte County Jail released him twice because of overcrowding and Webb failed to appear in court twice. A search warrant was out for Webb's arrest when he was killed.
