Danny Ayala was shot to death by deputies who answered a call Monday afternoon at the Summit at Alpine apartment homes. Someone at the apartment complex called 911 just before 3 p.m. to report a man who was yelling death threats. When deputies arrived, they said Ayala who was holding a knife began to advance towards them. According to homicide investigators, the deputies who feared for their lives, fired multiple shots at Ayala outside his apartment. The deputies administered first aid and CPR but Ayala died at the scene.However, Ayala’s family said it had heard a different version of the events from witnesses who claimed he was shot multiple times inside the apartment, after deputies broke through the door. Juan Ruiz, the victim’s uncle also questioned the treatment of Ayala’s four year old son, who may have witnessed the shooting and was taken into the the custody of the Sheriff’s Department after the shooting. Family members also said they were not informed about the child’s whereabouts for hours.“They should have called somebody as protocol, called somebody to “come pick up your child.’ You don’t just take a child and don’t tell nobody. You know, everybody was looking for the kid and nobody knows where he’s at,” Ruiz said. Family members said they were not notified of Ayala’s death by law enforcement, but learned of his death through the news media.At this time, no one is sure what happened in the moments before deputies opened fire. Homicide investigators were not able to say what deputies said to Ayala before the shooting. Vanessa Moore, Ayala’s cousin said the family wants more answers from the Sheriff’s Department. “People get upset all the time- unless there was a gun out there, unless he pointed a gun at the officers, which is not what they say happened- he had a knife, why did they tear down his door?”All these things that the policemen say happened and didn’t happen? We just need answers and if they don’t have them, that’s a little suspect to us, right now,” Moore said.
