Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer released the findings of the investigation into a separate shooting in Santa Ana on July 1, 2018. Donadony Blake Taylor, 46, was shot twice by one officer in the parking structure adjacent to Santa Ana police headquarters and Central Men’s Jail. Shortly before 11 p.m. Taylor had entered the lobby of the jail carrying a long metal pipe and two metal stakes. He left after Orange County sheriff’s staff told him to leave. Then, at about 11:30 p.m. he was spotted at the parking structure by a witness who saw him trying to break into cars while still carrying the metal objects. The witness called 911 and the officer who arrived — Officer Gavin Roelofs — commanded Taylor to put the pipe down. He did not comply so the officer discharged his Taser at Taylor who was not affected by the impact. Taylor appeared to reach for the Taser probes and pulled one out before the officer fired his weapon and hit the suspect twice. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead at 12:25 a.m.
