Vallejo police account of shooting disputed

The Associated Press, Posted: 12/16/2010

VALLEJO, Calif.—Friends of a Vallejo man who was shot by a police officer over the weekend are disputing authorities' account of the shooting.

Officers had been responding to reports of a man brandishing a firearm at teenagers Saturday. Police say 34-year-old Guy Jarreau Jr. ran from officers, then turned around while holding a gun, prompting them to open fire.

But at a candlelight vigil for Jarreau on Wednesday, friends who witnessed the shooting said he was not threatening the teens, but working with them on a music video.

Martin L'Esperance tells KTVU-TV police did not issue a warning before shooting. He says they also seized his cameras and a video recording showing the incident.

Vallejo police did not respond to a request for comment about the allegations.


Was Guy Jarreau shot in the back while running from the Vallejo cops?

Going by some reports, that is something that may be revealed by the confiscated video.
