OCEANSIDE — Police responded to a 911 call on the 4500 block of Milano Way on Sept. 1, and encountered a suspect armed with a knife.
The caller reported she was being attacked.
Police found the elderly female with injuries. She said her son, Gregory Foley, age 56, inflicted the injuries.
Foley failed to comply with numerous police orders to drop his weapon. Multiple resources were used to disarm him, but proved unsuccessful.
Foley continued to resist and was shot once in the shoulder by an officer on scene. He was then taken into custody with the assistance of a police K-9 unit.
Foley is being charged with attempted murder and elder abuse.
The caller and her husband suffered moderate injuries and were admitted to a local hospital.
The fragile condition of the male victim made it difficult to determine the origin of his injuries.
Foley was placed under arrest and transported to a local hospital.
Foley is scheduled to be arraigned on Sept. 5 in the North County Branch of Superior Court.
As of Sept. 4, Foley and the female victim were still hospitalized. The female victim is recovering in a local trauma center. The male victim was released from the hospital.
Officer Corey Kaldenbach, a six-year veteran of the police department, fired the single shot.
He is currently on administrative leave as is standard policy following a shooting.
