Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies were justified in shooting an unarmed, drug addict burglar, a Sacramento County District Attorney review of the shooting said.
Jesse Attaway, 41, was fatally shot by two sheriff’s deputies Sept. 23rd.
The officers fired multiple rounds at Attaway, and fired on him a second time. A third series of shots were fired after Attaway “stumbled to the ground and raised his hand,” the memo said.
Attaway was pronounced dead at the scene by medics. No gun was found. The review said Mai fired seven rounds in the shooting while Cater fired either 11 or 12.
Attaway’s father, Jim, said he did not agree with the outcome of the review. He said despite the circumstances, he did not believe deputies had the right to shoot his son.
“He wasn’t close enough to hurt them. He didn’t have a weapon,” Jim Attaway said.
Enjoy your Police State.
