Report: Man Killed by Deputies in Traffic Stop Was Shot in Back

Janet Kwak, Jason Kandel and Sharon Bernstein (NBCLA) | January 27, 2013

As the wife of a man shot by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies during a traffic stop prepared for a public meeting on the incident next month, a newspaper has posted a document that appears to confirm Rosie de la Trinidad’s contention that her husband was shot in the back.

The document, which the Los Angeles Times identified as a Nov. 13 autopsy report, says that Jose de la Trinidad was shot seven times from behind.

The fatal wound entered the upper right portion of de la Trinidad’s back, perforating his aorta, the large artery that feeds oxygen to the body from the heart, the report said.

Jose de la Trinidad, 36, was shot and killed Nov. 10 after a traffic stop led to a short pursuit, officials said. De la Trinidad, who was a passenger in a car, was unarmed when he was shot in the 1900 block of East 122nd Street in Willowbrook, deputies said.

In a protest on Saturday, Rosie de la Trinidad and about a dozen other protesters carried signs and chanted, “No justice! No peace!” in the dead man’s name.

The group walked nearly two miles to the Compton’s Sheriff’s Station where they confronted more than a dozen deputies standing in a line outside.
