Exactly three weeks after a deadly shooting involving a San Bruno Police Officer that left one suspect dead, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said that the preliminary investigation into the shooting has been completed.

He did not reveal what is in the report.

Wagstaffe is still awaiting two key pieces of the puzzle:

  • Coroner’s report
  • Crime lab reports

Wagstaffe has been told that he will receive those reports the first or second week of December. He told Patch, "Once I receive them, I'm a pretty decisive person. A decision will be made within a week." 

Wagstaffe’s office will determine if the officer was justified in using deadly force.

The day of the shooting, Oct. 22, the police department said that the officer fired in self-defense. The department referred all further inquiries to the D.A.’s office.

Once Wagstaffe announces the final outcome of the investigation, he will open the reports to the public. “Anyone in the community can come down to the (district attorney's) office and read all of the reports."

Mr. Wagstaffe says, "I'm a pretty decisive person." In what universe? There are dozens and dozens of instances where he has told one story to families of criminal defendants and crime victims, only to go behind their backs and do the complete opposite. If Mr. Wagstaffe were truly a decisive person, he wouldn't have to pretend to be a nice guy in order to mask his decisions that he knows will make him enemies.
