Orange County amusement park shooting leaves one dead

This from LA Now:

A security guard working night patrol at the Adventure City amusement park shot and killed a man who had hit him in the head.

The shooting took place at the intersection of Beach Boulevard and Starr Street in Stanton at about 11 p.m. Tuesday, authorities said. The security guard was patrolling the perimeter of the theme park, which is geared toward families and young children.

The guard approached a man in a pickup truck who had stopped at the park’s service entrance, and they began fighting with each other. The man allegedly struck the security guard on the head with “some type of blunt-force instrument,” said Orange County sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino.

Amormino said the man then allegedly retrieved an object from his truck “that was at least a couple feet long” that the security guard mistook for a shotgun. The man advanced toward the security guard, and the guard shot the man multiple times, he said. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

    winston “collin bawuah” was one of the best people i ever had the fortune to meet!!!i knew him but a short time,however i knew him well enough to know that this version of what happened is not true!i believe that there is more to the story and i hope that the truth comes out and that those who hid it realize that they need to come forth “in his name”!!he reached out to so many people,cared so much and it pains me to know that his life may have ended over his helping someone!this man was very dear to me.!!my love for him will not let me rest until the truth is discovered.so i ask any of you who know anything that contradicts what is being said to PLEASE remember you have a conscience,therefore you know the difference between right and wrong!DO WHAT IS RIGHT!

    I have posted a comment once before but it never got published. Winston was one of my best friends. He was like the prince of Zumunda. He confided in me and that night he knew something awful was gonna happen. I hope the concious of those involved allow them to sleep at night. He was not only a mental health worker he counseled most of the drug addicts on the very block he was murdered on. He was not a violent person at all. He was only 5’1 and petite how in the hell could he have took a flashlight and a baton from a 6 foot man? does anyone have an answer to that in Anaheim?
