ANAHEIM, Calif. (FOX 11) - An Anaheim police officer has been fired and a second if facing department discipline for fatally shooting a man in July 2018.
The firing comes after the Orange County District Attorney's Office released dramatic footage of the officer-involved shooting.
The DA's investigation found there was not enough evidence to criminally charge the two officers involved in the shooting, but the DA was sharply critical of their actions.
The DA's investigation determined that approximately 76 shots were fired between the two police officers, who at times, were seen in the released bodycam video shooting through the windshield of the police car.
Officer Kevin Pedersen, a probationary employee, was fired by the Anaheim Police Department, and Sean Staymates, a 10-year-veteran of the department, was put on administrative leave.
Chief Jorge Cisneros said bullets fired by the officers struck at least one building, a car, and a tree but no one else was hurt.
The Department says it's still conducting its own investigation into the shooting.
