Book hurled, shot fired: Bodycam video shows officer shooting man after encounter

A Modesto Police officer in 2014 shot a man who threw a junior high school yearbook at him, according to the law firm representing the man and body camera video of the incident released by the firm on Monday.

Jesse Montelongo was shot in the stomach by officer Dave Wallace when police responded to a disturbance at his home near Coffee Road and Morris Avenue on Oct. 17, 2014. He survived the shooting and was never charged with a crime related to the incident.

Wallace and officer Michael Callahan went to Montelongo’s home with information from a dispatcher that a woman had called 911 multiple times saying, “Help me” before the line disconnected, according to the reports. On at least one of the occasions the dispatcher heard the woman say “My son has a ….” before the line disconnected.
