Unarmed Teen Killed By Police Cried: ‘Mommy, Mommy, Please Come!’: LAist

Police said they found gang-related graffiti inside of the home after the shooting. They also arrested four others in the incident: Edgar and German Rodarte, ages 20 and 21, respectively, and Yesenia Pineda, 22, and Ceclia Cox, 22. However, the family says Hector Morejon was not in a gang. Their statement said that linking him to a gang “reflects the police department’s immediate tactic to attempt to make the victim of a police killing (here Hector) appear like a bad person. Hector was a sweet son and favored little brother.”

Anyone with information regarding this shooting is urged to contact the Long Beach Police Homicide Detail at 562-570-7244.

  1. Obviously something makes your polices officers paranoid and dysfunctional. Maybe they should wear some gas protection during the shot training (to prevent lead intoxication, just in case).
