San Diego, The San Diego Police Department Released Body Worn Camera Footage from critical incident regarding the officer involved shooting that took place on August 24, 2019 in the El Cerrito community in the 5800 block of Adelaide Avenue.

A 70-year-old woman called police shortly before 7:50 p.m. on Saturday, August 24 and tells the dispatcher that her nephew Dennis Carolino 52 years old had thrown bricks at her. “He’s out of his mind,” she said.

Body camera video shows Carolino's aunt telling Officers Mendez and Keyes, assigned to SDPD's Mid-City Division that her nephew tried to hit her with a brick twice and she's concerned he is not taking his medication.

As the officers entered the backyard area to determine the location of the man, he quickly emerged from an outbuilding, holding a shovel.

The officers gave the man verbal commands to drop the shovel. One of the officers drew his Taser at that point. The man did not cooperate with the officers’ commands and began to rapidly advance on the officers as he swung the shovel.

One officer fired the Taser, which did not have any effect on him. The man continued to advance, prompting the other officer to fire his service weapon,” San Diego Police said in a statement.

Carolino was shot multiple times and died of his injuries.
