A review by the city’s Police Accountability Board can’t proceed until the man’s criminal case has concluded. A lawsuit against the city remains on hold for the same reason.
A final determination has not been made in the case: the Internal Affairs Bureau has not completed its report and the police chief has yet to weigh in.
Bryant survived and has announced plans to sue the city.
The man who was shot is expected to recover and has been charged with multiple violent felonies, police said. Viewer discretion is advised.
The officer, Madison Albrandt, was hired by the city of Berkeley in November 2019, attended the police academy and was sworn in on May 19, 2020.
Vincent Bryant has been charged with robbery, assault on a peace officer and resisting arrest, as well as parole violation. All of the charges are listed as felonies.
Berkeley police officers shot a chain-wielding robbery suspect with a bullet and less-lethal projectiles Saturday night, sending the man to Highland Hospital with serious injuries.
