California deputy minister shoots suspected gunman

The California sheriff shot a suspected burglar in the head as he appeared to reach for a gun during a violent struggle, video shows.

Scene, released Tuesday by the Orange County Sheriff’s Departmentshows suspect Ernesto Aguilar, 30, being escorted out of a Walmart in Lake Forest on January 19 after an employee called police to report a possible burglary.

When Aguilar and a woman accompanying him were asked to leave the store, one of the deputies who responded discovered that he had a knife, the footage showed.

“Don’t reach for it,” said another deputy minister. “Take your f-king hand off the knife.”

“Sorry, sorry, sorry, sir,” Aguilar replied.

Deputies then attempted to put Aguilar in handcuffs as he began to resist, causing a violent struggle that ended with him on the ground and a bullet to the head after he appeared with a gun at his hip, the clip shows.

“He has a gun, he has a gun,” shouted a deputy minister. “Shoot him, shoot him!”
