Tustin, California — Newly released body camera footage released by Tustin police sheds new light on the fatal police shooting of a homeless man near a mobile home park. Video shows officers use a Taser before shooting Luis Manual Garcia on Aug. 9 after he jumped out of a bush holding a 4-foot wooden pole. Garcia’s family said that the father of three was dealing with mental illness at the time, but refused their help. Estella Silva is the officer who fired the fatal rounds, and all the officers involved in the shooting are still out in the field. Garcia’s family has filed a claim for damages against the city in the names of his 12-year-old and 18-year-old daughters. Rosalia Becerra, Garcia’s former partner of about 15 years, said she wants to see Silva punished for the shooting.
