On the morning of April 4, 2011 an Los Angeles Sheriff’s deputy shot a suspect who tried to run from the scene of a burglary. The deputy told investigators the burglar pointed a gun at him. The burglar, who later pleaded guilty, claims the officer planted a gun to justify the shooting.

Investigative reporter Annie Gilbertson combs through the evidence in an effort to piece together what happened that morning.
