CPD releases body camera footage of bus stop shooting | Local News

CALEXICO — Body camera footage released Tuesday of a fatal shooting involving an officer on June 14, 2021, indicates that the incident leading to the death of 65-year-old Manuel Rojas Barajas escalated very quickly, although the the city’s police department isn’t ready to say whether to.

Calexico police responded to a 911 call around 6:11 p.m., reporting that two men were engaged in an argument at the bus stop at Third Street and Paulin Avenue. The caller, who spoke in Spanish, said one of the men, later identified as Barajas, was armed with a knife and threatening the other man. She said she and her husband waited at the stop and left because the argument got “ugly”.
