LOS ANGELES (AP) — The California attorney general has filed manslaughter charges against a Los Angeles police officer who was off duty when he fatally shot a mentally ill man who was shopping with his parents in 2019. Officer Salvador Sanchez was arrested Monday in Riverside County. Sanchez was with his young son in a Costco in Corona when he was attacked from behind by 32-year-old Kenneth French. Sanchez was knocked to the ground and quickly opened fire, fatally wounding French and critically injuring French’s parents. Riverside County authorities had earlier declined to bring charges. It was not immediately clear if Sanchez has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
