Vista, California — On Sunday, May 7, 2023, at approximately 12:30 p.m., patrol deputies from the San Diego Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to the church located at 1418 Calle Jules, Vista. A male was reportedly at the location holding a handgun to his head. Upon the deputies’ arrival, they learned other members of the church were still inside the building with the male. As they attempted to gather additional information, they observed the male exiting the church with a firearm in his right hand. They immediately began giving the male commands to drop the firearm, but the male ignored their commands and walked into the parking lot and toward the deputies. The deputies backed up and continued to give the male verbal commands, but unfortunately the male ignored their commands and continued advancing into the parking lot.
One deputy fired a single shot from his department-issued rifle, striking the male in the legs, and causing the male to drop the handgun. Paramedics were requested and the deputies immediately rendered first aid to the male, applying a tourniquet to each of his legs. The male was transported to a local hospital and has remained there for treatment of his injuries which are considered non-life threatening. The deputy involved in the shooting has been identified as Justin Williams. He has been employed by San Diego Sheriff’s Department for approximately three years. He is currently assigned as a patrol deputy from the Vista Substation. No deputies were injured during this incident. The suspect in this case has been identified. He is described as a 77-year-old Asian male. The identity of the suspect is not being released at this time. This incident is under review with the District Attorney’s office to determine if any charges will be filed against the suspect in this case.

dang that’s a quarter mile from my grandmas house.
Why are police officers showing up with AR15’s and 30 round mags? I thought California citizens couldn’t have those?
I would have put the cross hairs on his head and pulled the trigger. Old man probably was wearing a diaper anyways.
If the family cares about him, they’ll remove all guns from him once he gets out.
Hope they charge this officer with murder. That guy had the gun in his fingertips not about to shoot it.
no less lethal options bean bag?.. tazer?.. wooden?
You can be an idiot at any age
It was obviously a attempted suicide by cop
Looked like he was trying to hand the gun off. I would’ve waited a bit, if he tried to te-grip the gun maybe then but this was premature
Dude he’s 77….you had all day to get behind him. Taser him. He wasn’t even holding it at you dude clearly wasn’t right and didnt wanna shoot y’all. Fuckin pussies coulda saved a life instead took one
This is sad. I wonder if dementia was a factor?
Cop was so close he coulda shot the gun outta his hand…
Unless this 77 year old guy was a former combat veteran with pistol skills, the way the pistol is dangling from his pinch grip on the grip of the gun is less concerning to me than it would be for him to actually drop the pistol to the ground. I wouldn't want to drop test any gun the way they so casually do in hollywood movies. Where was the officer with 40 cal. rubber bullet gun, aimed at the old guys thigh he would likely have toppled over as well, with a lot less damage than getting hit with a 5.56 lead bullet to the leg and less danger for anyone downrange.
Holy crap… lots of people say "why don't you shoot him in the leg.." And, this cop did… lol
“He’s in the other building.” 🤷🏼♂️
Suicide amongst males is very high amongst 55+
Is that how you treat an old man?
God Job 🐷🐷
Grandson was a puss.
