In the early morning hours of March 6, police officers were dispatched to a McDonald’s located at 1341 S. Brookhurst Rd. for a report of two men standing at the entrance and acting erratically, possibly under the influence of drugs.

Video showed the officers arrive on scene, where they found a shirtless man swinging a belt and speaking incoherently. Officers attempted to get the man to drop the belt, but he refused.

Additional officers were called to the scene and one of the officers deployed a stun gun on the man, who was unaffected.

Another officer then began firing beanbag rounds from a shotgun, which are deployed as a less-than-lethal alternative to traditional ammunition.

The man was struck multiple times and seemed unfazed by the projectiles until a last and final shot was fired that appeared to subdue him. He then dropped to the ground and let go of the belt, and police approached him.

It was at that point that they discovered that one of the beanbag rounds pierced the man’s chest, leaving the man bleeding and gasping for air.

Fullerton Fire Department paramedics were called to the scene and responding officers rendered CPR until their arrival. They attempted to use an automated external defibrillator (AED), but the unit instructed officers not to deploy a charge.

Paramedics then arrived on scene and took the man to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. He’s since been identified as 50-year-old Alejandro Campos Rios.
