“Its clearly an execution. Its murder,” said attorney Humberto Guizar, who is representing Aguilar’s fiancé and mother.
“I want them to pay for taking my son’s life,”
Notice how the story the cops report differs from the video. Its obvious this killer cop shoots this man in the back then makes up a story.
The camera shows two deputies and Aguilar in a driveway adjacent an apartment complex nearby. At one point, Deputy Albert Murad fires his gun–and accidentally hits his partner.
“I’ve been shot,” Deputy Jose Ruiz cries out. “I didn’t shoot nobody,” Aguilar responds.
It’s unclear if the deputies realize that it was Murad who shot Ruiz.
After 45 more seconds of struggle, Murad shoots again and Ruiz, apparently bleeding from his stomach, fires three rapid shots. Before the end of the video, Aguilar is heard saying “I’m dying.”
The Media tells a different story given by the cops did the shooting
Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy was shot with his partner’s gun, not the one carried by a transient, during a struggle last month in Long Beach.
Sheriff’s officials originally reported that the deputy was shot in the stomach May 26 by Noel Enrique Aguilar, 23, a transient, during an exchange of gunfire.
The shootout left Noel Enrique Aguilar dead.
But on Thursday, officials said the deputy was actually hit by a round from his partner’s gun as they tried to arrest Aguilar near 69th Way and Long Beach Boulevard shortly before 10 a.m.
Aguilar escaped and ran north. But the deputies caught up to him and a “second struggle occurred,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.
Aguilar, who authorities said was armed with his own handgun, reportedly tried to take one of the deputies’ guns, prompting them to open fire, officials said.
Authorities are still trying to determine who fired the partner’s gun during the struggle.
Aguilar died at the scene, where his gun was recovered, according to the statement.
“We welcome any additional video evidence that individuals may have,” it said.
“The Sheriff’s Department takes all deputy involved shootings seriously. An internal affairs investigation was conducted and completed and will be presented to the Executive Force Review Committee in January.”
Both deputies are back on patrol, according to the statement.
The family is calling for a federal investigation of the shooting.
