9/12/2013: Police responded to reports of a man threatening people on Mill Ave with a box cutter. He was found in front of a Chili's restaurant. Castillo would not comply with police demands to drop his weapon. He lunged at officers with the box cutter. A Police negotiator arrived and attempted to talk with the agitated Castillo. He charged an officer who fired his weapon striking him. An eye witness challenges the police account claiming Castillo was 10-15 feet from officers when he was shot. Austin Del Castillo died days later in the hospital. http://www.kpho.com/story/23416466/box-cutter-wielding-man-shot-by-temp-police-dies
