The Stockton Police Department said Thursday that Melecio Arquines aimed the laser sight attached to his handgun at officers as they struggled with a teenager after a foot chase that ended in Arquines' backyard.
It was the laser that drew the attention of Officer John Hernandez, who spotted Arquines' gun, shouted a warning to his colleagues and then shot Arquines, killing him last week at his south Sutter Street home, said Officer Pete Smith, a Police Department spokesman.
