Deputy named in fatal shooting of unarmed Marine
The Orange County Sheriff's Department said the deputy who fatally shot an unarmed Marine earlier this month is Darren Sandberg, a 15-year veteran of the department.
Sandberg shot Marine Sgt. Manuel Loggins Jr. in the parking lot of San Clemente High School in the predawn of Feb. 7 after Loggins crashed his GMC Yukon through a gate and refused orders, authorities said. Sandberg was first identified by Patch.com on Friday.
Sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino said the deputy had feared for the safety of Loggins' two daughters, who were in the Yukon.
The Orange County district attorney's office is investigating the incident.
