March 29, 2019 (El Cajon) – Surveillance video, a cell phone video and witness interviews are providing new details on a man shot dead yesterday in the 1300 block of East Main St. in El Cajon.
The evidence indicates the man was likely trying to burglarize and then carjack a vehicle, says Lt. Royal Bates. When an off-duty security guard reported the vehicle break-in, the suspect tried to “violently attack” the guard. The guard told police he then pepper-sprayed the suspect, but it had no effect.
