All Witnesses Found for Questioning in Deadly Shooting
Lubbock Police say they have found all the witnesses they need to send a report to the District Attorney's Office on last week's fatal shooting. 19-year-old Michael Cain De La Rosa was shot and killed by police after he reportedly pointed what turned out to be a fake handgun at officers.
Police say they ordered De La Rosa to drop his weapon but he turned to face the officers and pointed the handgun at them. Police fired at least nine shots, hitting him at least three times, including once in the chest. "I can't believe these things are happening here, its scary," said Rosa Ramirez, witness to the shooting. "What you see on tv, a piece of rag in the middle of the street, somebody got shot," said another eye witness.
The two officers involved in the shooting are on paid administrative leave until the District Attorney's Office can complete its investigation.
