Officers initially pulled over Franklin Donald Oden, 39, for a traffic violation on Tuesday, not knowing he was the person they say shot at a 67-year-old man on the 1200 block of North Gowdy Street on Monday.
Oden bolted from the car on Tuesday, shooting at the two officers, said Visalia police spokesman Dustin Thompson. One shot back, hitting him.
Oden died at Kaweah Delta Medical Center. That’s where police realized he was also wanted for attempted murder, said Thompson.
