According to Oklahoma County prosecutors, Adan Sanchez-Gallegos failed to yield at a stop sign and an intersection in south Oklahoma City on Sept. 19. Video surveillance showed his vehicle rolling after it was t-boned in an intersection. Instead of waiting for police, Gallegos is seen driving home about a block away. Once home, police said, Gallegos left his son, a deaf and mentally impaired Magdiel Sanchez, outside.
When police arrived to investigate the wreck, Sanchez was near the pickup, authorities said. He was shot five times after refusing to drop a metal pipe.
District Attorney David Prater later determined the officer who shot him was acting in self-defense.
