An off-duty Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy was shot and killed by police in Southern California after they claim he pointed a gun at them on a golf course.

Alejandro Diaz: Who is he?

According to a press release from Fontana Police, the off-duty officer, later identified as 45-year-old Alejandro Diaz, pointed a gun at them on Tuesday afternoon at the Sierra Lakes Golf Club facility in Fontana, about an hour east of Los Angeles.

Officers were called to the scene after hearing shots fired from a nearby house. Before fleeing the scene and showing up at the golf course, Diaz is believed to have fired shots inside the house with two handguns.

Police claimed that when they attempted to speak with Diaz, he instead pointed a gun at them. Then, several policemen opened fire on Diaz, who was later declared dead at a nearby hospital.

Nobody else suffered harm.

“The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department released a statement saying that it was “deeply saddened to hear of the tragic shooting incident involving our off-duty deputy who passed away.” We are in constant contact with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and the Fontana Police Department as they carry out their ongoing investigation. For the involved officers, our staff, and the family, this incident has been very difficult.”

In a statement provided to a source on Wednesday, the head of the agency’s union, the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs, expressed his sorrow.

Richard Pippen said, “This is an absolute tragedy for our deputy, his family, the first responders, civilians in the area, and everyone impacted.” “ALADS is not afraid to encourage anyone struggling with mental health issues to seek professional help, and we support the expansion of mental health networks in our community.”
