A group of protesters gathered Saturday afternoon and blocked traffic on northbound U.S. Highway 101 in Santa Rosa to show their disapproval with the Sonoma County prosecutors’ decision not to file criminal charges against a sheriff’s deputy who fatally shot 13-year-old Andy Lopez in October.
BB guns and pellet guns would have to look clearly different from those that fire bullets to be sold in California under a bill approved Tuesday by the state Senate in response to several recent shooting tragedies involving children.
The FBI will conduct an independent investigation of Tuesday’s fatal shooting of a 13-year-old boy by a sheriff’s deputy in southwest Santa Rosa, Sonoma County Sheriff Steve Freitas said Friday afternoon.
A preliminary autopsy report released Thursday said Andy Lopez was shot seven times, and the two fatal wounds were in his right hip and the right side of his chest.
Investigators Wednesday afternoon released new details about the shooting death of a 13-year-old boy by Sonoma County sheriff’s deputies south of Santa Rosa on Tuesday afternoon.
New details have been released about an officer-involved shooting in San Jose over the weekend.
A man was arrested and another is being sought after the pair allegedly used a plastic toy gun to try to rob a taxi driver in San Francisco’s Western Addition neighborhood on Monday night, police said.
