Update: Colton cop who shot and killed a man (7/31) also shot and killed Tremayne Marshawn Williams, 21, 20 days earlier

“One of the officers involved in the shooting death of a 21-year-old man Tuesday in Highland was involved in a similar fatal shooting earlier in July, authorities say.

The Colton Police Department has not identified the officer but police Detective Ray Mendez said one of the officers involved in Tuesday’s shooting also was involved in the July 11 shooting death of Tremayne Marshawn Williams.

“They have to be cleared to resume their duties,” Mendez said, explaining officers involved in shootings must be psychiatrically evaluated. “They get as much counseling as they want but there is no policy that I’m aware of that states how long they stay off the street after a tragic event.”
