Incident Reports

2020 Shooting of "F.D."

On August 18, 2020, Yeun and Officer Robert Hines located a vehicle whose driver was wanted on open warrants and had posted pictures of themselves with firearms on social media. The vehicle fled but eventually stopped. From the passenger side, 15-year-old F.D. fled on foot as the vehicle stopped, with Yeun in pursuit. Yeun described F.D. as holding his waistband as he ran, possibly securing a pistol in his pocket. F.D. ignored orders to stop, fell, and drew a handgun as Yeun approached. Yeun fired, injuring F.D.[1]

F.D. received medical aid at the scene before being transported to the hospital.[1]

The incident was captured on Yeun's body-worn camera.[1]
