Student in complete shock as they watch the deputy body cam footage of the shooting.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Dept responded to call 13400 block of Iroquois Road in Apple Valley. The caller reported 15 year old Ryan Gainer was assaulting family members and destroying property at the family’s home. As two deputies responded to the Gainer family home while approaching the door the 15 year old male named Ryan Gainer ran at a deputy with a garden tool. As he is approaching the deputy with the garden tool, the other deputy pulled out his service pistol shooting and killing 15 year old Ryan Gainer, who was later found out to be diagnosed with autism.

Sheriff Of San Bernardino Shannon Dicus released a statement “Our deputies handle seemingly insurmountable calls daily. Most of these calls do not end in violence. However, this one ended in tragedy for Ryan, his family, and for the deputies who responded. Rapidly evolving, violent encounters are some of the most difficult, requiring split second decisions. While these decisions are lawful, they are awful in terms of our humanity. I feel for both Ryan’s family and my deputies who will struggle with this for their entire lives.”

Eyan Orscoco Junior stated that the “deputies acted within their duties as peace officers and acted reasonably to protect the community and selves”. Jacob Orscoco Junior said that “law enforcement did what they had to protect the lives of the citizens of Apple Valley and acted within their police powers”. The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Dept did not identify the deputy who killed 15 year old Ryan Gainer as it’s currently under investigation.
