Carmen Trutanich has been questioned about an incident that occurred in 1985 when he was under oath in a legal proceeding in 2008. He said he had a hazy recollection and described an encounter in which his investigator saw somebody with a gun in Green Meadows Park. He never mentioned coming under gunfire or being surrounded by gang members at the park.

Recently, in an interview with The Los Angeles Times he is saying something different. Trutanich said that his memory has improved since the 2008 deposition.

Now, Trutanich is saying that although he wasn’t surrounded by gang members, he did see a gun emerge from the window of a passing car while he was alone in the park and heard shots as he hid. “I have the distinct recollection of it being a long gun,” he said.

Trutanich said he could not be sure he saw a firearm, when he testified back in 2008.

That same deposition was part of a legal proceeding brought by the man he convicted in that murder case.
