Orange County Sheriff’s Office Press Release

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is committed to transparency and believes it is critical to maintaining accountability and enhancing trust between this agency and the public.

It is our policy to release body-worn camera video within 30 days of a critical incident, including deputy-involved shootings. We think it’s important for members of our community to view the entirety of what is released, rather than rely on short snippets in the media.

Video of critical incidents may contain strong language and graphic violence. Viewer discretion is advised.

The following video is from a deputy-involved shooting on Jan. 2, 2022. Deputies responded to a 911 call from a woman reporting a family dispute. When deputies arrived on the scene, they witnessed a man in his 20s shoot his father and then turn his gunfire toward deputies. Deputies returned fire, striking the suspect. The suspect is deceased; his father survived.
