Video Shows Chino Deputy Shooting Unarmed Iraq Vet

(AP) CHINO A videotape released Tuesday shows a sheriff's deputy shooting an unarmed Air Force policeman who recently returned from Iraq as he apparently heeded an order to get up off the ground.

KTLA-TV repeatedly aired a 40-second clip it said came from a Chino resident who videotaped Sunday night's shooting, which followed a 100-mph car chase.

Senior Airman Elio Carrion, 21, was listed in good condition at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton.

His father-in-law, Ernesto Paz, told KTLA-TV that Carrion was shot three times in the chest, ribs and leg.
