Marine Sergeant Manuel Loggins Jr. was shot and killed by an Orange County Sheriff's deputy in the parking lot at San Clemente high school.

According to the Sheriff's department the deputy watched Loggins crash through a locked gate around 4:30 in the morning and enter the parking lot at an "unsafe, high rate of speed." Loggins then walked onto the football field. Other deputies were called to the scene to set up a perimeter but they lost site of Loggins. About five minutes later the deputy saw Loggins as he walked toward his SUV containing two young girls. The deputy shot at Loggins because he feared for the safety of the two young occupants.

However a former commanding officer said that the two young girls were Loggins' daughters and his morning routine consisted of taking his girls to the high school early in the morning where he would walk the track and have bible study with his daughters. The sheriff's department has confirmed that Loggins was not armed and there were no drugs or alcohol involved.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Loggins family... especially the two young girls who were present when their father was killed. The Loggins family may be entitled to compensation to cover medical expenses, funeral costs, loss of income, and loss of love and companionship.

It may be in the family's best interest to contact an Orange County wrongful death lawyer who can advise them of their rights... as well as protecting the rights of his children as a result of this tragic incident.

If you lost a loved one in an accident and have questions about your rights please call me for a free consultation. I'm Patrick Steinfeld for Ask a Lawyer 411.
