On April 21, 1958, Deputy Robert Schultz was shot and killed after he and his partner stopped an old school bus being driven by a mentally disturbed man.

The man's family was riding in the bus and had displayed signs for help in the windows. The deputies stopped the bus near Dana Point and started getting the family off of the bus. As they did so, the man ordered his 11-year-old son to shoot the deputies and the boy opened fire with a .22 caliber rifle. Deputy Shultz was struck by a round and killed, and his partner was wounded.

News ImageApril 8, 2015  NEWS RELEASE: Investigators Seeking Public’s Assistance Locating Vehicular Manslaughter SuspectSAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. – (March 8, 2015) – On Saturday, March 22, 2014 at approximately 7:35 p.m., Antolin Brito-Soto, 33, San Juan Capistrano, was involved in a solo-vehicle collision near Camino Capistrano and Junipero Serra Road. Brito-Soto’s four (4) children were in the vehicle; three were seriously injured and one, a 5 year-old daughter, died from her injuries resulting from the collision.

The collision occurred as Brito-Soto drove his 2002 Ford Explorer westbound on Junipero Serra Road, through Camino Capistrano into an adjacent parking lot and over an embankment. Based on the preliminary investigation, it was determined Brito-Soto was driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision. Brito-Soto was arrested the night of the collision and posted his $150K bail several weeks later. He has not returned to court since his arraignment on charges of vehicular manslaughter and child abuse.

Brito-Soto is a male, Hispanic, 5’3’’, 150 lbs., black hair and brown eyes with a medium build and olive complexion. He is known to frequent the San Juan Capistrano area; however, he has ties to Chicago, Texas and Mexico. Investigators have exhausted resources in those areas and are asking the public for assistance locating Brito-Soto.

Orange County Deputy District Attorney Stephen Cornwell is prosecuting the case.

Anyone with additional information is asked to call Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s Traffic Bureau at (949) 425-1860. Anonymous tips may also be submitted to Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS (855-847-6227) or at occrimestoppers.org.
