10 officers involved in deadly Salinas shootout

KCRA 3Salinas police say 10 officers have been placed on administrative leave while officials investigate their roles in a deadly shootout with an armed parolee.

Cmdr. Vince Maiorana said Monday that the officers included eight from the Salinas Police Department, a California Highway Patrol officer and one Monterey County sheriff's deputy.

The firefight occurred Friday evening when officers from the county's gang task force tried to stop 30-year-old Juan Luis Acuna on a Salinas street and he ran away. During the short chase, officers in marked and unmarked cars exchanged gunfire with Acuna. He was struck several times and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Salinas Californian reports that Acuna, a parolee with a criminal record dating back to 1999, has been linked to several shootings in the area.
