  • Published on Jun 17, 2019
  • A family is in mourning after a California man was killed Friday by an off-duty cop in the frozen food section of a Costco. According to the Corona Police Department, the officer was shopping with his family when the man, identified by police as 32-year-old Kenneth French, suddenly assaulted him in an unprovoked attack. The officer, who was not identified, then fatally shot French and wounded the man's parents, Paola and Russell French, who were with him at the store.

    The cop Salvador Sanchez is a killer. I hope Kenneth's family gets justice and the cop goes to jail.

    For the people mad at the Lapd officer, this ain't the only self-defense gun case by officers.

    At this point, Sanchez is trying to lay the groundwork to get off because of "reasonable doubt". Sanchez comes up with an alternative story, a false one, but if his lawyer can get some of the jury to even think that it MIGHT be true, he could avoid the murder conviction. Hopefully, the camera footage will remove all doubt about what happened. I don't trust the police to not alter or damage the video, tho.

    cop is lying, witnesses saw the whole thing. There was free food in the area, the KID too eager to get the food, so was the cop. who wanted the feee food too. THEY COLLIDED. Cop automaticlaly took the "i'm in fear of my life stance, shoot to kill" , The arguing was the father trying to stop the cop from killing his son... The father was IN THE WAY. so shoot him and the kid, Thern the mother came over and that was a bonus shoot to the head. She is still in a coma, HEAD SHOT.

    the cop was not kocked out. It was not a hard shove. the baby well I can't explain that.... I can't explain where the cop got 3 hands form too, holding baby, drawing gun , all while fighting hand to hand combat... he;s going to have to do a replay in court if I were a Juror.

    Off-duty cop, holding young son, hit from behind, knocked to floor, temporarily Ko'd. Came to w/6'4" enraged young man on him. He shot. Bullets went through attacker & hit parents, who were on top of him, trying to pull him off cop. Attacker now known to be psychotic off his meds. Without gun, cop or his son might've been killed.

      @Kms Sad Did YOU read the story?
      1. He wasnt knocked unconscious, he was pushed to the floor, not punched
      2. He got up from the floor and said he was a cop and started shooting. 7 times to be exact. Hitting the elderly woman in the back of the head, the father in the chest and murdering the son. If he was arguing minutes AFTER getting up, he knew clearly what was going on..

      Manny G he was scared of the son who knocked him unconscious so he shot without knowing what was happening for the protection of his family. Did you read the story? I’ve read multiple websites with the story. The police officer was self defence

    In my opinion, officer Sanchez of the lapd should be shot dead. It's also sad to find out he was Raza. He couldn't take the fact he got knocked out.

    • Manny G
      Manny G 14 days ago

      I don't even think he was knocked out. We need the tapes. Lets say he was knocked out, wasnt he allegedly holding the baby? He woke up and shot 3 people? 1 elderly woman in the back of the head. He will get off tho

    Why there is NO videos of what happened inside Costco? It looks like the police department, is covering-up something. Perhaps, the off-duty cop, was the one who started the whole thing. Why did he has to shoot the mentally challenged men, his senior father, and senior mother? They should charge that off-duty policemen with murder, and two attempt murders. Well, that's if the parents of the deceased, don't die too. Believe me, if the off-duty cop, wife, and daughter were the one who got shot, there will be 20 videos, showing all the angles of the incident, and what happened inside the store??? This smells very fishy! Those people need to hired a real good lawyer. I do hope they get one.

    robert perrotta 27 days ago

    This should be investigated in the same manner a civilian "self defense " CCW shooting would. Forget the fact that he is a cop. Would a CCW holder who acted similarly be charged with murder? In my opinion, at a minimum he fired entirely way to many shots. 8 shots for an unarmee man? Why shoot his parents? The whole thing already stinks. I can promise had this been a civilian he would already be locked up. Period.

    First of all he was holding his child and shooting a gun right next to them? That is child indangement and most likely could blow the childs ear drums and second since he is a cop shouldnt he know self defense using his body or just for safe measures? If he was assulted and had his child with him I understand he was mad but a gun? That is an officer abusing his job and his right to have a gun. He is a cop he out of all people should have known not to open fire and he shot the parents too and could have harmed others. Charges need to be pressed that officer needs to be in jail.

    Self defense is the new excuse for cover up. Los Angeles PD Public Relations, get to work! By the way, if you shoot my mom in self defense, I will also shoot you in self defense. Eye-for-an-eye baby! I like the self defense clause. You can shoot who you want (you just have to be a cop so that it is legal). Great country! Go Trump: support departmental cover ups. Let’s make america kill again #MAKA

    As much as I support cops this cop should be in prison for shooting the parents...unless they were all 3 attacking the cop which is highly unlikely also where is the CCTV footage my local Costco has many cameras around the store
