Cardenas was shot in the back while pleading for his life. He was shot around 1:23pm on 4th & St. James in San Jose, CA. Rudy Cardenas then lay on the concrete bleeding while officers held back the paramedics. About a half an hour later paramedics were able to take him to the hospital. He was brought to the San Jose Medical Center with no pulse. They tried to revive him but it was too late. A mother lost her youngest son, and five children lost their father.
