The facts are not in yet, but at the outset this looks bad for the security guard.

Security Guard Shoots, Kills Possible Shoplifter in Encinitas

Last Update: 12:15 am


A security guard shot and killed a person behind an Encinitas business Tuesday night.
The Sheriff's Department got a call at 6:44 p.m. that a security guard had shot someone at 140 Encinitas Boulevard near Coast Highway 101.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they found the wounded person and the guard behind a Smart and Final discount warehouse.

San Diego 6 Reporter Jenny Hamel spoke exclusively to the brother of the victim's girlfriend. She witnessed the shooting and said the victim and the security guard were arguing. The victim apparently said he was "tired of you cops following me everywhere."

"The guy drew a gun on him," said the brother. "And from what I understand that he said, 'Well, just shoot me, shoot me' or something and the guy just shot him."

The victim was declared dead at the scene.

One of the business owners in the strip mall says the victim and his friends were transients that hung around the strip mall.

If that's the facts, security guard will be going to jail for code 187.

I don't know all the facts, just what I have read here, but if this is true as reported the guard should go away for a long time. These security guards many times prove "a little power is a dangerous thing", many that I have run into should not be in any position of power and for sure should not have a firearm.

consider the source of the "eye witness" account, directly related to the suspect/victim however you choose to think about it. I will be anxious to find out the real story.

I am not ready to jump on this security guard just yet. Notice that the "eyewitness" is an associate of the dead guy. Not exactly an independent witness.

Like the saying goes, "Often, the worst evidence is an eye witness"

Here we go again. PLEASE refrain from making any judgement, guesses, rants, inuendoes, blah blah blah till we get more facts. I will close the thread if people start accusing or making things up in this thread.

Looks like they mean it when they say "Smart and Final".

Man fatally shot by security guard

ENCINITAS – A 48-year-old man was shot and killed at a shopping center Tuesday night by a security guard who said the man attacked him, according to officials with the Sheriff's Department.
The man's name has not yet been released as authorities seek to notify his family about the death.

Tomas J. Collazo, who was in uniform and on-duty, told deputies he was in an area behind the Smart & Final store on Encinitas Boulevard, just west of Interstate 5, about 6:45 p.m. when he was accosted by the man, said Sheriff's Lt. Dennis Brugos.



AdvertisementParamedics and deputies tried to revive him but he was pronounced dead just after 7 p.m.
Brugos said all indications are that Collazo was trying to avoid the confrontation with the man, “retreating and trying not to get involved.” But the man was enraged and attacked, the lieutenant said.

The man was not armed but did have something in his hand which turned out to be a pair of sunglasses. He appeared to be homeless and was not wearing shoes or socks, Brugos said.

Mark Lawson, owner of the nearby Coastal Postal store, said his business was closed and he was sitting in his office with the back door open.

He heard what sounded like a gunshot and then a scream. Collazo ran up moments later and yelled “Shots fired! Shots fired! Man down! He tried to attack me!” Lawson said.

The store owner said he believes the slain man was one of the transients who live in an encampment in a brushy area behind Cottonwood Creek Park next to the shopping center.

He said a group of about three to four men and two women are routinely seen at the shopping center going through the Dumpster and that the problem got so bad that locks were placed on the garbage containers. Security was aware of the problem, as was the Sheriff's Department, Lawson said.

The business owner said most of the security guards at the center do not carry weapons.

A spokeswoman for Airtight Security of Upland, Collazo's employer, refused to comment Wednesday.

All private security guards who want to carry a handgun in California must possess a firearms qualification card issued by the state's Department of Consumer Affairs, Bureau of Security and Investigative Services.

Brugos said Collazo told detectives he was licensed to carry a firearm while on duty, however, as of late Wednesday morning, detectives had not independently verified that.

To qualify for a card, an applicant must complete a course approved by the bureau in the carrying and use of a firearm. The course includes proof of qualifying on an approved firearm range with the caliber of weapon to be used by the applicant.
