Annette Garcia, a Brown Beret de Aztlan member and a mother of three children, was shot in the back Wednesday evening by a Riverside County Sheriffs deputy. The name of the shooter has not been released but according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Perris Station, the deputy has been placed on "paid" administrative leave pending an investigation.

The call was made due to a domestic dispute. The police started shooting from a block away, and was in NO DANGER.

The deputy arrived by himself at a home at the 16900 block of Lake Mathews Drive and shot at Annette Garcia six times while she was walking away. She was distressed, carrying a knife while walking AWAY FROM THE OFFICER. The officer began to shoot from behind, at which point, Annette Garcia started running for safety to her home. Five of the shots missed but one hit Annette Garcia in the back. She bled to death in from of her children.

The 29 year old mother was rushed to the Riverside County Regional Medical Center in Moreno Valley but was pronounced dead on arrival.

The cowardly murder of Anne Garcia has sent shocked waves throughout Aztlan and there is a call by the leadership of the Brown Berets and ALL organizations in solidarity with us and against police violence to undertake energetic protests and demonstrations.

The candlelight vigil is just the first step…get your people in the streets!!!
