(Orange County Weekly) A Los Angeles television station obtained cell phone video from a witness to a Santa Ana police officer fatally shooting homeless father of two Hans Kevin Arellano on Tuesday afternoon. It’s difficult to make out the action, but you clearly hear the death shot and the cameraman repeating, “Why’d they shoot him … why’d they shoot him.”
Meanwhile, another witness captured Arellano family members confronting police.
The witness, who wished to remain anonymous, reportedly told the station’s news crew that the 13-year veteran officer got out of her patrol car in front of Jugo’s La Tropicana juice bar on South Harbor Boulevard and asked Arellano to get on the ground.
“The gentlemen didn’t get on the ground, he was still inside the restaurant,” the witness continued. “She asked again. The man then exited the restaurant, and as he was exiting the restaurant, he said, ‘What are you gonna do, bitch?’ About a second later, she shot him in the chest.”
