Grieving family and friends await investigation results
Ramon Garcia Salazar, 31, was standing with his father, Juan, on Saturday morning November 14, hoping to be chosen from among a group of men for a day's work in manual labor. He and his father were selected, but each for different job locations.
It was the last time the father saw his only son alive.
Something went terribly wrong at about 10 a.m. as deputies responded to a 911 disturbance call to the Subway restaurant located at the 2900 block of Rubidoux Boulevard in Jurupa Valley.
Salazar was shot by deputies and died from injuries sustained inside the restaurant as he allegedly charged at them with a hammer.

Laid to rest, questions remain
Where did paramedics take Salazar? Did the taser miss or malfunction? What does the in-store video surveillance reveal? Are sheriff's deputies trained to kill or disarm a man wielding a hammer?
- Photo at left: Salazar is laid to rest Saturday, November 21, with over 200 mourners attending the graveside service at Menifee Valley Cemetery.
