California Deputy Fires at Subject During Traffic Stop
March 29, 2011
A Contra Costa County (Calif.) Sheriff's deputy fatally shot a 24-year-old man at a traffic stop who had tried to speed away from the deputies, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
The deputies stopped 24-year-old Johnny Angel Ochoa, who was wanted on child endangerment and vandalism charges in Bay Point. After Ochoa gave the deputies a false name, he tried to speed away. One of the deputies had attempted to yank the keys out of the ignition of the vehicle, which struck the second deputy.
A deputy opened fire, hitting Ochoa in the abdomen.

Well, not going to second guess these guys....Good shooting to me.
Who knows, maybe this idiot was going to harm the victim or someone else.........He did not care if he hurt the deputy. I think my fellow LEO did a great job in a split second .
