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.
F.D. received medical aid at the scene before being transported to the hospital.
The incident was captured on Yeun's body-worn camera.
On January 21, 2022, the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office investigation determined that Yeun acted "in a reasonable manner" and there was "no criminal liability" on Yeun's part.
On May 16, 2023, the District Attorney's report was released.
