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.

A deputy opened fire, hitting Ochoa in the abdomen.
