San Benito Mother Seeks More Answers after Results of Internal Investigation Released
SAN BENITO – A San Benito mother continues to push for answers; her son was killed following a police pursuit late last year.
Of the six officers previously identified as to being involved in the incident, only one, thus far, has been disciplined with a five day suspension.
The mother says the department’s results are not enough.
Rick Trevino was gunned down by San Benito police in December after a pursuit.
His mother, April Flores, says her son had been taking pain medication due to an injury from a tractor-trailer accident.
When Trevino took the meds on an empty stomach, she says a concerned family member called an ambulance. Police showed up as well.
Flores says her son refused medical attention and drove off.
The police followed – leading officers on a crosstown pursuit.
