Video: Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office discusses Andy Lopez case at community meeting


SONOMA COUNTY (KRON) — The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office faced the community Monday night with how it will change after one of its deputies shot and killed a 13-year-old boy.

KRON got a first look at exactly what the sheriff’s office plans to do. Changes in the wake of Andy Lopez’s death are on the horizon.

In May, a task force made almost 70 recommendations to the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office. This came after deputy Erick Gelhaus shot Lopez in October of 2013, as he walked along a Santa Rosa street with an airsoft BB gun.
