Condition Improving For Man Who Was Shot By Cops After Allegedly Stabbing His Mom To Death

The Marin City man who was shot by U.S. Park Police after he allegedly killed his mother Friday is in fair condition at San Francisco General Hospital today, hospital spokeswoman Rachael Kagan said.

The suspect, 22-year-old Carlos Aldana, is expected to be booked in the Marin County jail after he is medically cleared from the hospital, Marin County sheriff’s Lt. Jamie Scardina said.

Aldana is suspected of fatally stabbing his mother Rosa Aldana, 44, in her apartment on Cole Drive in Marin City.

Her body was found after Marin County sheriff’s deputies received a request around 11:10 p.m. Friday to check on her welfare, Scardina said.

A person who had returned to the apartment before deputies arrived noticed the front living room was completely covered in blood and called 911, Scardina said.

The California Highway Patrol then received a report about a man covered in blood boarding a San Francisco-bound Golden Gate Transit bus at Donahue Street in Marin City.

U.S. Park Police located the bus at Fillmore and Chestnut streets in San Francisco. When the blood-covered rider got off the bus, he threatened the officers with a knife. Officers then shot the man, later identified as Aldana, several times, Scardina said. He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital.

Detectives are interviewing witnesses and family members to determine a motive for the slaying, Scardina said.
