DA: Shooting of San Diego suspect justified
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- San Diego prosecutors have determined that police were legally justified when they fatally shot a man who held up a gas station, fled in a stolen car, shot one person and held two others hostage in a home.
U-T San Diego said Wednesday (http://bit.ly/1b8K7dU ) that the report by District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis concluded the four officers from San Diego and National City bear no criminal liability for the death of Adolfo Tovar.
The 47-year-old was shot in the head, neck, chest, back and arms during his spree last May.
Police opened fire as Tovar backed a car through a garage door and sped toward a number of SWAT officers in the Bay Terraces area.
The report said toxicology tests showed Tovar had methamphetamine in his system.
