BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - An incident review board has ruled that the three deputies who shot and killed a woman almost two weeks ago were acting within the Sheriff's department policy.
Maria Rodriguez, 42, was killed when deputies David Stephens, Dwayne Perkins and Rodney Jones opened fire on her back on August 8 on Union Ave.
Investigators say Rodriguez was standing on a pile of rocks yelling at the deputies when she reportedly pulled out a gun, which led deputies to fire their weapons. It was later reported that the weapon was in fact a B.B. gun.
The case then took an odd turn when the woman was misidentified as Sarah Bustamante. That led to a firestorm of reaction on social media.
