Kenneth French, 32, was killed and his parents were critically injured when the off-duty Los Angeles Police Department officer shot them on Friday night inside the Costco Wholesale warehouse store in Corona.
Police said the officer, who hasn’t been named, fired his gun at French following an altercation that witnesses say took place near the freezer section.
Authorities say the officer was carrying his child and that he retaliated after French attacked him.

French was killed and his parents remain in critical conditions at hospitals after also being struck by gunfire.
“The Riverside County Coroner’s Office has identified the deceased male as 32 year-old Kenneth French from Riverside,” Corona PD revealed in a press release on June 15, 2019.
According to KTLA-TV, that officer works at the Los Angeles Police Department’s southwest division and was released from the hospital. His injuries were minor and the incident was described by LAPD as “an officer-involved shooting.”

The officer was treated and released at a nearby hospital and the officer’s child was not injured.

French’s cousin penned a Facebook post on Sunday saying the family were unfairly being painted as suspects.
‘My cousin Kenneth was killed and his parents, my aunt and uncle were also both shot and are in ICU. Do they look intimidating to you? Did he really have to shoot them all?’ Rick Shureih wrote.
‘I’m posting this picture because the stories on social media have made them out to be the suspects, and the off duty cop the victim.
‘This is a family that was unarmed and was just grocery shopping. Truth will come out! I’m sure this was a misunderstanding that got escalated for no reason!’
The shooting prompted a stampede of frightened shoppers to flee the store east of Los Angeles and seek cover inside.
Witnesses said they saw a man with a Mohawk haircut arguing with someone in the freezer section when shots rang out at least six times.
Corona police Lt. Jeff Edwards said the man involved in the argument was the one who was killed.
