Information from the Dublin Police Services:
Dublin Police Services received a call from Blaine Cox on Friday, January 25, 2013, at 9:22 am stating that his son Ryan Cox, 28, was creating a disturbance at their home on Fredriksen Lane. Blaine said his son was punching holes in the wall and he would be waiting outside of the residence because he was afraid of his son.
Dublin Police Services arrived on scene and met with Blaine in front of the house. Officers were speaking with Blaine and a subject, later identified as Ryan Cox, exited the garage carrying a knife approximately ten inches in length. Ryan refused to listen to commands and continued towards the officer, who at that point feared that he would be attacked with the knife, and fired several rounds at Cox striking him in the upper torso and arm. Alameda County Fire Department and Paramedics Plus responded to the residence and provided emergency medical treatment to Ryan. Ryan was subsequently transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Dublin Police will be submitting their investigation to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office requesting that Ryan Cox be charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon, 245(a)(1) of the California Penal Code.
Anyone with information in regard to the incident is asked to contact Sergeant Yesenia Sanchez at the Dublin Police Services at 925-833-6682
