Video screenshot of Deputy involved shooting in Geyserville (Sonoma County Sheriff)
Two Sonoma County Sheriff’s deputies are facing criticism following the release of body camera footage from a deadly shooting on July 29th. One of the two deputies shot and killed David Pelaez-Chavez, ending a 45-minute foot chase through rural and hilly Geyserville. Family members say you can hear Pelaez-Chavez yelling “you are going to kill me” to the deputies in Spanish. The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office also says the video shows the man bending down to pick up a rock. But, his brother tells the Press Democrat he was just doubling over from being so tired from running away from the police.
