At around 1 p.m., dozens of officers flocked a public shopping center in El Cajon, according to NBC San Diego. It was stated by one of the witnesses that an officer fired five rounds. A manager inside a nearby restaurant reported that the suspect refused to remove his arms from his side.

The motives of the police in the El Cajon shooting were questioned by witnesses. During the event, crowds started swarming gradually on the scene; chanting started, demanding answers from police.

The victim of the shootout was sent to a hospital, and the man’s injuries are currently unknown. It was alleged that the gunfire was racially motivated, according to 10 News.

“I didn’t hear any command ‘Halt’, ‘Stop’ or ‘I’ll shoot,’” said George, one of the witnesses.

“I didn’t hear any command or yelling. I didn’t hear the man say anything. Next thing I see ‘Pow, pow, pow, pow, pow’ – five shots.”

The police department confirmed that there will be a thorough investigation to determine whether the El Cajon shooting was appropriate. They also informed that they cannot release details at this point.

Police had in their possession a cell phone, which would act as evidence. A witness voluntarily handed the phone over to police.
