San Diego DA Rules May OIS Justified

January 30, 2014  | 

Four San Diego police officers and one from National City were legally justified when they fatally shot a man in May who robbed a gas station, shot a Bay Terraces resident and held two others hostage, the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office has determined.

Adolfo Tovar’s final act was to back a car through a garage door and speed toward a number of SWAT officers. Five officers fired 27 rounds at the car, hitting Tovar 16 times, according to a report made public on Wednesday.

Tovar, 47, of National City, was shot in the head, neck, chest, back and arms, the report by District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis said.

Toxicology tests showed Tovar had methamphetamine in his system and a blood-alcohol level of 0.07 percent, just below the 0.08 percent legal limit for driving, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
