California Police Release Names of Officers Involved in Deadly Shooting
LOS BANOS, CA – July 23, 2018
Luis Castellanos Jr. and Omar Mondragon are the officers responsible for deadly shooting in Los Banos, in central California, local media states.
Castellanos was identified as the officer who opened fire on Salome Ramirez back in July 11, a 34-year-old Los Banos man with a minor criminal record and, according to police, a history of acting “belligerent” and “aggressive” with officers.
Jason Hedden, Commander of the Los Banos PD, confirmed on Friday that, at nearly the same time that Castellanos fired his gun, the other officer, Mondragon, fired his Taser stun-gun at Ramirez.
Police shootings are a recurrent event for California, that’s why this particular case has resonated with the public so much.
