EUREKA, Calif. — Eureka Police Lt. Antonio Zanotti said he can think of a few instances where a Taser saved an officer's life and a suspect's.

On one occasion, a man who was suspected of stealing from the Broadway Mall was brandishing a handgun while walking down Broadway. When officers came into contact with the man, he turned the gun on himself, Zanotti said. The officers had to Taser the man, he said.
