State agents kill parole violation suspect in San Diego
State parole agents shot and killed a 42-year-old parole violation suspect who resisted arrest and pointed a gun at the agents outside a San Diego hotel, San Diego police said Thursday.
Backed by San Diego police detectives, the two agents went to a hotel in the Kearny Mesa neighborhood Wednesday night to arrest a parole violator who was also a suspect in a commercial burglary, Police Lt. Ernest Herbert said.
Rather than submit to arrest, the suspect got into a car and pointed a gun at the agents, Herbert said. "Fearing for their lives," the two agents fired at the suspect, killing him, he added.
The suspect's name was not released. A companion, Jillian Cini, 29, was arrested on charges of parole violation.
The agents are assigned to the California Parole Apprehension Team and were described only as three- and 11-year veterans.
