Deputy Robert Shultz 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.
