In 2008, after chasing a Lexus due to “high narcotics activity in the area”5 Officer Camilosa, along with Officer Perez-Angeles and Officer Omar Daza-Quiroz shot and killed Leslie Allen. After the car crashed, Officer Camilosa ordered the two people in the car to show their hands. The driver ignored the command, while Leslie Allen, in the passenger seat, reached for the dashboard. Camilosa then fired three times, striking Allen once in the head. No narcotics were found in the car, though a loaded weapon was.1
