ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA — A recent police-involved shooting was captured on video after an off-duty police officer attempted to detain a juvenile trespasser. During the incident, the off-duty officer drew a concealed handgun and apparently had a negligent discharged while trying to maintain positive control over the juvenile.
We reviewed the footage available on YouTube. The off-duty police officer was surrounded by juveniles after he detained one of them. The situation escalated quickly. The off-duty officer was then repeatedly physically assaulted by multiple teenagers.
At one point, he makes the decision to draw his concealed handgun from his waistband because he was getting ganged up on and assaulted from multiple teenagers. To maintain positive control over the first teenager he detained, it appears that he uses the same hand clutching the gun in an attempt to pull a juvenile from the bushes.

No one was hurt from the bullet but both the 13-year-old and a 15-year-old were detained by police.
