Ex-Police Officer Charged In Costco Shooting


Salvador Sanchez, an ex-Los Angeles police officer, has been charged in the 2019 shooting death of Kenneth French. He is also accused of wounding French’s parents.

The officer was apprehended two years after shooting the man at a Costco in California.

Sanchez is facing charges of voluntary manslaughter and assault with a semi-automatic weapon.

The occurrence transpired when the off- duty officer was holding his child at the store on June 14, 2019. French came up from behind and knocked Sanchez over. Sanchez then fatally shot French. He told police he thought French had a firearm and was scared for his son’s and his life.

French’s relatives say he was having a mental breakdown, wasn’t verbal, and hadn’t taken his medicine. He was unarmed.

In 2020, it was ruled that the shooting violated LAPD policy.

“No matter who you are, nobody is above the law,” a statement from the DA’S office noted.
