Report: Oakland Cop Shot Man in the Back

One day after attorney John Burris called for criminal charges against Oakland cop Hector Jimenez for a Friday shooting, an autopsy revealed that Jiminez fatally shot the man in the back. Mack Woodfox was behind the wheel of his car when Jimenez and another officer tried to pull him over. After a brief chase, Woodfox got out of the car and was shot by Jimenez. The officer claimed that Woodfox ran and made a sudden furtive movement toward his waistband, but a passenger in the car claimed that he just got out and put his hands up. Jimenez and his partner are off the streets until the investigation is concluded.
