A man in California was killed by the police after calling them “pigs” and attacking them with a steel bar. The incident happened on early Sunday morning. The attacker was 60 years old.
The officers were conducting a DUI investigation before the attacker, who wasn’t involved in the DUI investigation attacked the cops. The cops then shot him before he could land any blows with the steel bar.
The cops told the man to stand down many times throughout the incident.
“Barcenas ignored the officers’ commands and continued to advance towards the officers in an aggressive and threatening manner,” the Oxnard Police Department said.
The man was shot multiple times and was taken to a nearby hospital where he died just a few hours later. The officers involved were put on paid leave after they shot the attacker.
