    Man killed after an alleged argument and attack on an off-duty officer in Costco was nonverbal, cousin says

    The cousin of a man shot and killed by an off-duty police officer in a California Costco says his relative was nonverbal and couldn't have started the argument that allegedly led to the shooting, according to a report by the Los Angeles Times.

    Police said the victim, identified by the Corona Police Department as 32-year-old Kenneth French of Riverside, assaulted an off-duty Los Angeles Police Department officer in an unprovoked attack before the shooting.

    The officer, who was reportedly holding a young child while shopping with his family when French allegedly attacked him, shot and killed French and also shot two members of French's family, police said.

    Corona police Lt. Jeff Edwards told reporters just after the incident that police believe the shooting resulted from an argument.


    "From my understanding, from some people we talked to, there was apparently an argument inside," Edwards said. "Some type of argument and ensued into a gun shot."

    The family members who were shot were the victim's parents, Russell and Paola French. The Corona Police Department said in a statement the other shooting victims are in critical condition.

    Police have not named the officer involved and say that the officer's gun was the only weapon in the case.

    So, an off-duty officer shot and killed a non-verbal man and shot both of his parents (all three unarmed) in a Costco? :shrug: WTH?

    Gunman dead, 2 injured in second California Costco shooting in three days

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news...ing-california-chula-vista-gunman/1483082001/


    A gunman shot two people in a Costco parking lot Monday afternoon in Southern California before turning his weapon on himself, police said, the second deadly shooting at one of the warehouse clubs in three days.

    The male suspect fired a handgun at his ex-girlfriend and her current boyfriend as they loaded shopping items into their car, Chula Vista Police Department Lt. Dan Peak told USA TODAY.

    The suspect died from self-inflicted gunshot wounds about an hour after he opened fire. The man and woman are undergoing surgery for serious injuries, Peak said. The woman's infant, who sat in a nearby stroller during the shooting, was not injured.

    Monday's shooting occurred in the city of Chula Vista in San Diego County, about 100 miles from the site of Friday's shooting in Corona that killed one man and injured two others. Corona Police are now reviewing video footage of the incident.


    -----------------------------------------

    This one sounded like a domestic situation from the first reports of a man walking up to a couple in the parking lot, shooting them, and then shooting himself. Thankfully he left the infant unharmed (physically).
