BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A woman died after she was shot at 4 a.m. Sunday morning by three Kern County Sheriff's deputies.
Deputies say it all started with Sarah Bustamante yelling and throwing rocks on top of the rock pile. They say as they approached her she pointed a gun at them.
They fired and Bustamante was pronounced dead at the scene. It turns out the gun she was holding was a BB gun made to look like a real semi-automatic handgun.
Deputies say they were trying to talk her down when she showed the gun. The officers involved are on paid administrative leave and an autopsy is scheduled to find out how Bustamante died.
The family said Bustamante had a big heart and loved everybody and the family is planning a car wash to raise money to pay for funeral expenses.
The car wash is at the Fairview Market and will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday.
