San Jose police on Tuesday released an edited video stemming from a brawl inside La Victora that ended with an officer shooting an East Bay college football player who was holding a gun he had grabbed during the fight.
Police initially rushed to the restaurant thinking the fight might be related to a homicide that occurred a block away and they had previously explained that they shot K’aun Green because they thought he might be connected to that death or be an active shooter in the neighborhood.
But the video confirmed what the 20-year-old had said from the onset: Sgt. Christian Camarillo made the department’s first formal acknowledgement that Green did not bring a gun into the taqueria on March 27. More
According to NPR, “Green, a football player at nearby Contra Costa College, was rushed to a nearby hospital and underwent emergency surgery; he suffered injuries to his abdomen, leg and arm, the lawsuit says, and is uncertain if he’ll be able to continue pursuing his athletic career.”
He’s suing the San Jose police.
