(Calexico police complete an internal investigation)…Over a year after they began it.
The investigation was into an officer involved shooting. In July of last year officers had gone to a Lincoln Street home to serve a search warrant. The Department says officers were confronted by 29 year old Fernando Fuentes. A Taser was fired at Fuentes and he was shot twice, once in the wrist and once in the bicep. Neither wound was life threatening. The Department initiated administrative and criminal internal investigations. The Criminal investigation was conducted by Sergeant German Duran, who was the supervising officer at the scene of the incident, though officials say he did not participate in the shooting. Once the investigation results are turned over to the District Attorney’s Office, a determination will be made as to what action, if any, is taken concerning the shooting.
