Police: Off-duty officer shot man who hit him in Costco

Yahoo News

CORONA, Calif. (AP) — An off-duty police officer opened fire inside a Costco Wholesale warehouse store, killing a man who had attacked him and wounding two others, the Corona Police Department said.

Kenneth French, 32, of Riverside assaulted the Los Angeles Police Department officer Friday night while he was holding his young child, the department said in a statement Saturday. The officer fired his gun, hitting French and two of French’s relatives, the department said. 

French was killed, the department said. The relatives are in critical conditions at hospitals.

The officer, whose identity is being withheld, was treated and released at a nearby hospital, and the officer’s child was not injured, the department said.

The officer was the only person who fired shots in the store, the department said.

The shooting prompted a stampede of frightened shoppers to flee the store east of Los Angeles and seek cover inside.

Witnesses said they saw a man with a Mohawk haircut arguing with someone near a freezer section when shots rang out at least six times. The man involved in the argument was killed, Corona police Lt. Jeff Edwards said.

Witnesses said there was an altercation. Shoppers and employees described terror and chaos when shots rang out shortly before 8 p.m. Friday and police swarmed the store.

Shrieks from inside the store were heard on video recorded by shopper Nikki Tate, who had stopped by with her daughter to pick up steaks and lobsters for Father’s Day.

Tate said Saturday she was by the meat section when she heard “about six or seven shots.” She dropped to the ground and crawled toward her daughter who was at the other end. They huddled until they were able to escape through a side door.

“I saw people and heard shots and my first thought was ‘Jesus, is this another mass shooting?'” she said. “I didn’t know if this was a random thing or a domestic thing or if this was a mass shooting. Everything was happening so fast, I just wanted to get me and my kid to safety.”

In the video, her daughter says, “Mommy, we need to go.”

The Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement Saturday afternoon that it has launched its own investigation of the incident.

Christina Colis told the Riverside Press-Enterprise that she was in the produce area when she heard six to seven shots and hid with other shoppers in a refrigerated produce room. She said her mother saw people injured on the floor.

“I thought maybe someone dropped a bottle of wine, but then I kept hearing shots,” shopper Will Lungo told the Press-Enterprise newspaper. “An employee came in and helped us out through the emergency exit.”

Witnesses told KCAL-TV that shoppers and employees rushed to the exits. The station reported that more than 100 people were outside the store at one point. Left behind inside the store were purses, cellphones and backpacks from panicked shoppers, Corona police said.

    If I am reading this story correctly it appears the pig just went berserk and wanted to kill as many people as he could.
    Quoting above; “Kenneth French, 32, of Riverside assaulted the Los Angeles Police Department officer Friday night while he was holding his young child, the department said in a statement Saturday.” “… while he was holding his young child…” ???? You buy that?

    Bullsh*t! Bullsh*T! Bullsh*T!!!!

    “Witnesses said they saw a man with a Mohawk haircut arguing with someone near a freezer section when shots rang out at least six times.”

    And not ONE of those ‘witnesses’ recorded the incident?

    And no STORE VIDEO either???

    Serious credibility issues with this one.

      The only scenario that comes to mind that makes any sense would be if French had been busted by this pig previously, and recognized him.

      Stupid f%&ker shoulda been armed, obviously.

      Or at least one of his ‘critical condition’ relatives shoulda been.

      idiots!

        My bad… worse than I thought, considering the poor guy was mentally incompetent to begin with, and those were his parents that the POS pig tried to murder as well.

    Lots we do not know…like how the officer was assaulted, whether weapons were involved by French and others, etc…attacking someone holding a child is gutless . we will see..really hard to make blanket statements without more facts.

    • Henry Shivley says:

      The fact that the facts of the incident, which are no doubt well known, are not a part of this article tells me that the bully with the gun shot up a family, killing one of them who wouldn’t take his Blackwater shit because they didn’t know he was an armed Blackwater agent.
      As far as attacking someone holding a child, well this is the line of thinking that has allowed our southern border to be invaded.
      Any time a pig is involved in a shooting, the propaganda machine is going to try to make his victims look like Bonnie and Clyde.
      I’m sure Cosco, like every other corporate store, has plenty of cameras. People don’t usually go around punching people in stores for absolutely no reason. And I wonder what the case would have been had one of the human beings that was shot by this son of a bitch been found with a pistol in his pocket. I’m sure he would be looking at years in prison.
      Yeah, there is not enough information, but it would seem the automatic instinct is to take the official Blackwater line of bullshit and declare the unlawful mother f-ker a hero. Remember these pigs are operating unlawfully in our country as a part of an unlawful corporate occupation.
      And here is a little secret for you, Gordon, these sons of bitches lie when it is easier to tell the truth.

    • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

      What we DO know, Gordon, is that these @ssholes have ZERO AUTHORITY TO EVEN EXIST IN THIS COUNTRY. They continuously LIE, STEAL, and MURDER US DAILY.

      This is the LAST PLACE YOU WANT TO DEFEND PIGS. THEY’RE A TOTALLY ILLEGITIMATE ENEMY-FORCE-IN-OCCUPATION, AND THE STINKING jEWS’ FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE AGAINST US!!!!!

      99 out of 100 times… THIS IS THE TRUTH OF THE SITUATIONS THEY CREATE – “Hours later, however, police changed the narrative and said no one was in custody and that there had been no arrests in the case.”
