The family of Bryan Carreño, who was shot 20 times by sheriff’s deputies in February 2017, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Santa Barbara, California County Sheriff’s Office, alleging that two of the five deputies involved had firsthand knowledge of Carreño’s mental-health issues and potentially suicidal tendencies and negligently and recklessly caused his death.
Deputies shot Mr. Carreño, after he refused to drop the knife he was carrying, upon leaving the house of a neighbor he’d entered while intoxicated on multiple substances. The deputies, who had spent about two hours tracking down Mr. Carreño, found themselves closed in by the patio fence of the neighbor’s house and opened fire. They claimed they feared for their lives and those of their fellow deputies. The District Attorney ruled the homicide justified.
