Corey Bagley, who plays a major role in organizing the tournament for the Sheriff’s Department, expressed gratitude for the help of the many volunteers who worked both out front and behind the scenes to make the tournament a success.

The incident is under internal investigation, said Deputy Tony Moore. A caller reported seeing the squad car at a gas station in northern San Diego County at around 8:30 a.m., Rooney said. California Highway Patrol officers tracked down the car in San Diego’s Otay Mesa neighborhood after another caller reported seeing it parked in a lot there. Aguilar allegedly jumped back inside and sped away. Two San Diego police cars and another CHP vehicle joined the chase onto the highway. Two officers, one from the San Diego police and one from the CHP, fired when Aguilar reached for the shotgun, according to Rooney. SAN DIEGO – Police shot and wounded a man spotted driving a stolen Los Angeles County sheriff’s squad car in a southern San Diego neighborhood near the Mexican border, officials said Wednesday. Police contend Regino Aguilar, 26, reached for a shotgun secured between the cruiser’s front seats after leading officers on a brief chase on Interstate 5 Tuesday morning. Aguilar’s injuries weren’t life threatening, though officials declined to release exact details of his wounds. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment and will be booked into county jail on suspicion of auto theft, evading arrest and assault once he is released, San Diego police Lt. Kevin Rooney said. The marked cruiser was stolen from a parking lot outside a youth activity center Los Angeles at around 7 a.m. on Christmas Day. The windows were intact when Aguilar was stopped in San Diego and the keys appear to have been in the ignition, Rooney said. last_img read more
