Police Officer Gerardo Silva suffered a fatal heart attack after responding to a call involving a violent mentally ill subject.

The subject had assaulted another officer two weeks earlier and had to be apprehended by a canine. When Officer Silva arrived on scene the subject acted in an aggressive nature towards him. Officer Silva was able to de-escalate the situation.

During Officer Silva's following shift he suddenly collapsed inside of the police station. Other officers performed CPR until he was transported to a local hospital where he passed away.

Officer Silva had served with the Redwood City Police Department for 18 years.
