SAN CLEMENTE (CBS) — Surveillance video shows an off-duty Marine’s sport-utility vehicle crashing through a gate in the parking lot at San Clemente High School, minutes before an Orange County sheriff’s deputy shot and killed the Camp Pendleton sergeant.
The grainy video obtained from San Clemente High School Tuesday does not show the shooting scene, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times. The video is from a camera mounted on the school gym.READ MORE: LAPD Announces Anti-Recidivism Program, Offering Community Programs Over Jail Time For Certain Non-Violent Crimes

The deputy pulled up behind the vehicle when it stopped and ordered Loggins out, according to Orange County sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino. Loggins — who was not in military uniform — did so but reportedly started walking toward the football field, ignoring the deputy’s commands to stop.
It was unclear what triggered the deputy-involved shooting, which occurred when Loggins turned around to walk back toward the SUV, according to Amormino.MORE NEWS: Some Residents Confused On If They Should Continue Wearing Face Masks As Mandate Is Lifted
