“The shooting happened the day after Acosta-Sanchez had eluded police efforts to arrest him and an ensuing manhunt involving police and forest rangers, as well as dogs, ATVs and helicopters. Acosta-Sanchez escaped by swimming across the Rio Reservoir. Police broke off their search at nightfall.
The morning of Oct. 11, 2013, Acosta-Sanchez showed up at Carlson’s door. Carlson marched him at gunpoint to a neighbor’s home so someone could call 911. Carlson told police Acosta-Sanchez lunged at him, and he fired the gun. Acosta-Sanchez lunged again, and Carlson fired a second time, hitting Acosta-Sanchez in the head and killing him instantly.”
