East Los Angeles, California — The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department released body camera video of the fatal deputy shooting of 34-year-old David Ordaz Jr. the day after his family filed a lawsuit against the county. David Ordaz Jr. was shot and killed in East Los Angeles on the afternoon of March 14 after family members called for help during an incident in which the man was holding a kitchen knife. Body-camera footage of the shooting appear to show Ordaz, after being hit with non-lethal rounds, turning to flee down the sidewalk. Deputies allege Ordaz lunged at them, prompting lethal force, according to the complaint for wrongful death and civil rights violations. At least 10 rounds were fired, including a single shot fired immediately after the flurry of gunfire had stopped and Ordaz was lying face up on the sidewalk, holding his shoulder.
