Police say they were responding to a call of a “erratic subject,” Police say the man did not comply to what he was saying. In a Facebook video, a woman who claims to be the sister of the man can be heard saying,

“I called you to help me but you killed my brother. Why couldn’t you guys Tase him? Why, why, why, why?”

Norma Chavez-Peterson, executive director of the ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties, released a statement saying,

“It is too early to know many of the details of the actual shooting and what preceded it, and we hope that the El Cajon Police Department and the San Diego District Attorney provide the public with answers as quickly as possible, with transparency and accountability for all involved.

“Unfortunately, there are disturbing reports from a number of witnesses that police officers confiscated cell phones from people who witnessed the shooting.”

In another video of a protestor speaking, the woman says the man who was killed was mentally challenged. Crazy!
