WALLA WALLA - The Walla Walla County Sheriff's Office hopes to forward the investigation of the shooting death of Cesar Chavira, 22, to the Prosecuting Attorney's office soon, Sheriff John Turner said this morning.

New York Store owner John Saul shot Chavira early in the morning May 4 after Chavira apparently broke into the store. Family members and friends of Chavira have called the shooting an excessive use of force, and have held several protest marches.

"We still do have things at the state crime lab," Turner said. "There is no hold-up. It's just an ongoing criminal investigation."

Turner said the Sheriff's Office has conducted a series of forensic tests, including ballistic tests with the shotgun Saul used. The Sheriff's Office is also working with a computer program that helps recreate traffic collisions to help recreate the events during and after the shooting.

"We are looking forward to our investigation concluding." Turner said.

Will be interesting to see if this prosecutor also makes a mob-appeasing decision to charge Mr. Saul with "something". Perhaps he has asked the Sheriff to find "something" to charge with, and that's why its taking a little longer? I hope not. Here is some background from previous articles:

According to his lawyer, a Walla Walla store owner who shot and killed a known gang member trying to break into the store was defending his property.

John Saul, owner of New York Store, told his lawyer that he came out to the front of the store early Friday morning after he heard the sound of glass breaking.

Saul, who lives on the property on Isaacs Avenue, confronted Cesar Chavira, 22, and told him to "hold it".

Michael Hubbard, Saul's lawyer, told KAPP/KVEW Chavira said "I'm gonna kill you", and Saul responded by shooting him with his shotgun.

Hubbard said the Walla Walla County Prosecutor told him there are no charges pending and is not expecting to charge Saul with any crimes.

Saul opened the store the same morning of the shooting and has been operating the store since.

The Sheriff's Office said Chavira was a known gang member in the community and had a history of criminal activity in Walla Walla and Milton-Freewater.

WALLA WALLA — Family and friends of the late Ceasar Chavira, who was killed during a burglary at the New York Store May 4, gathered for a second protest march against the actions of store owner John Saul, who shot Chavira.

Signs ranged from calls for justice to more pointed accusations of murder. Several protestors held signs that read, “It’s Not About Gangs — It’s About Excessive Force.”

“It wasn’t really a gang activity that was going on,” said Chavira’s cousin, Eder Alejandre.

Ramon Gomez, a self-described “friend of the community” (one of Obama's government-funded will-travel community organizers??? LINK TO HIS PROFILE) added that Chavira was wrong to break into the store.

“What Ceasar did was not right,” Gomez said. “They were both wrong.”

Jessie said he understands Cesar made a bad choice to break into the store, but he didn’t deserve to die for the mistake. He said he won’t rest until justice is served.

“We’ll take it civil, but either way he’s gonna get justice. What he did was in the wrong. He knows he’s in the wrong. He has to live with that and sleep with that. And honestly I just can’t wait until he gets justice,” Jessie said.

It's obvious that this is a coordinated effort by outside agitators, for a purpose other than 'justice' for a criminal who broke into a store, threatened the owner's life, and was shot in self defense. This looks like a manufactured 'Trayvon'/GOTV, but for hispanics.

So, we aren't supposed to shoot either in self-defense, or to protect our property; based upon the race of the criminal?

Pretty much.
Crimes aren’t crimes if they are perpetrated by certain groups against certain groups.
For example, it’s okay for gang members to rob murder and rape as long as the victims are white or asian and the perps are not.
Just like voter intimidation is not voter intimidation as long as it’s NeoBlack Panthers doing said intimidation.
