WATCH: California Cop Shoots Navy Veteran Multiple Times,

UPDATE AND CORRECTION: The victim in this shooting death was a 27-year-old navy veteran, not a high school student as we reported in the original article.

A Huntington Beach police officer was captured on video shooting a high school student several times in front of a 7-11 after struggling with him on the ground early Friday morning.

The Southern California police department has not released many details yet but confirmed the teen died at a hospital.

Huntington Beach police have not confirmed the victim was a teen, but a woman who heard the shots posted on Facebook that a student in the area confirmed he was a junior at Marina High School, which is nearby and was placed on lockdown.

The teen appeared to be unarmed, according to two videos recorded by a witness, who posted them on Twitter, showing the two struggling, the other showing the cop shooting the man multiple times while telling him to “get down.”

“What the fuck,” says the man recording the incident.

The first video shows the man appearing to pull something from the officer’s belt, but it is not clear what that object is.

But the man who recorded the video tweeted that it was the officer’s “clip,” meaning the magazine for his gun.

The second video shows the cop jump off him and pull his gun out, telling him to get down while shooting him several times.

The man, still holding the object, never points it in the cop’s direction.

According to KTLA:

A 17-second video of the incident was initially posted to Twitter just after 9:30 a.m. It shows an officer firing multiple times at a man, who falls to the sidewalk.
A Huntington Beach Police Department spokeswoman said the officer contacted a male individual at the 7-Eleven at 6012 Edinger Ave. and they “got into an altercation.” Then an officer-involved shooting occurred and the male was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries, police spokeswoman Officer Angie Bennett said.
Police weren’t immediately releasing any other details, but just after noon Bennett confirmed the man had died.

We will be updating this story as we receive more information.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
