Officer rammed by car is wife of officer who shot driver

An Oakland Housing Authority police officer who was rammed Tuesday afternoon by a man driving a stolen vehicle and the officer who shot the driver are husband and wife, the housing authority's police chief said today.

The officers, who have not been identified, “did pretty much what they were trained to do” in detaining Raymond Marshall, a 21-year-old Oakland man who had allegedly struck the female officer with the car, Chief Carel Duplessis said.

The incident began at about 9:50 a.m. Tuesday when the female officer responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle parked at 2529 Ninth Ave., according to Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason.

She approached the driver, Marshall, and detained him for questioning before attempting to handcuff him. Marshall allegedly resisted, started the car and drove at the her, police said.

The second officer arrived and saw his wife pinned by Marshall's car. The officer fired two shots at Marshall just as he began to accelerate toward him in reverse.

The officer who was struck was hospitalized with lower limb injuries and a possible broken elbow, and was released Tuesday evening.

“She's pretty banged up,” Duplessis said.

Both officers have been put on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation, as is standard procedure.

Duplessis said the agency will wait for a final ruling in the investigation, but that “it seems so far it was pretty much done by the book.”

Marshall suffered a gunshot wound that was not life-threatening, and was also taken to a hospital, police said. He was later released from the hospital and arrested for attempted murder of a police officer, vehicle theft and possession of stolen property.

Marshall is scheduled to be arraigned at 2 p.m. Friday in Department 112 of the Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse in Oakland.
