BRENTWOOD, Calif. --
After a shooting Saturday night that hospitalized one Brentwood teen, Brentwood Police tased some of the victim’s family who were interfering with assisting officers, according to police.
The shooting occurred at about 9:15 p.m. near the 7000 block of Brentwood Blvd., where three teenagers were standing. One received at least one gunshot wound and ran with the two others back to the victim’s neighborhood, according to Sgt. Mark Misquez.
Police later arrived and began assisting the victim. The victim’s family and friends gathered at the scene, and, according to Misquez, interfered in the assisting officers’ work. The officers then ordered the family members to step aside and when they did not comply, police responded by tasing some of the victim’s family, including his father and sister.
"As the brother was getting tased the dad approached asked them to stop tasing his son, then they started tasing the dad at that time there were three cops tasing two people who were already on the floor," said witness Janine Esquivel.
The police took several individuals into custody for assaulting and resisting officers, according to Misquez.
The 14-year-old shooting victim, who police did not identify, was airlifted to the John Muir Medical Center. He's listed as being in stable condition as of Sunday.
Police are still investigating the incident.
