Jurupa Valley Police Department shoots and kills man

rQRo's picture

Once again, a police murder with absolutely NO PRESS COVERAGE (please correct me if I'm wrong!)! And once again, sounds like the guy was unarmed, even if the pig is claiming that he says he had a gun. Why is it that if you tell them your name they don't believe you, but if you say you have a gun, then all of a sudden you are unimpugnable?

UPDATE: Found some coverage. See below:

Here's a link to the pig version of the story, from the RSD press release:

On July 14, 2012 at approximately 9:00 am, officers from the Jurupa Valley Police Department responded to an attempted robbery at the 3600 block of Pacific Avenue in Jurupa Valley.

Officers arrived within minutes and located the suspect. The suspect ran from the officers and the officers ran after him. As one officer caught up to the suspect, the suspect stated he had a gun and threatened to shoot the officer. The officer, in fear of his life, fired his duty weapon, striking the suspect. The additional arriving officers immediately provided medical assistance to the suspect and called for Cal-Fire and paramedics to provide medical treatment. The suspect was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Investigators from the Jurupa Valley Police Department and the Sheriff's Department Central Homicide Unit responded and assumed the investigation. The name of the suspect is being withheld pending notification of next of kin. The involved officer has been placed on paid administrative leave, per department policy.

The investigation is continuing and there is no additional information available for release at this time.

Anyone who may have information regarding this incident is encouraged to call Investigator Jason Corey at the Central Homicide Unit, 951-955-2777 or Investigator Joel Pabelico at the Jurupa Valley Police Department, 951-955-2600.
