Elias Mejia (7661)

3/18/2013: SJPD's Metro special-enforcement unit was looking for Mejia in connection with the killing a week earlier of 44-year-old Daniel Canales in East San Jose. The team spotted Mejia driving a Honda Civic they determined was stolen. Officers blocked in Mejia's car and he tried to ram his way out. A San Jose officer had gotten out of his unmarked police car when the Honda accelerated toward him. The officer fired a single shot at Mejia, who killed. http://www.ktvu.com/news/news/crime-law/san-jose-officer-ruled-justified-fatal-shooting-mu/nfh6j/
