Summary of Alex’s Story: On March 21st, 2014 around 7pm, Alex was eating a burrito, watching the sunset on Bernal Hill Park, before heading off to his night shift as a security guard. Witness say he was non-threatening: “just a guy eating a burrito.” All the same, someone called the cops on him because they were afraid of a young Latino man, who they thought carried a firearm. Seven minutes transpired between the placement of the 911 Call and four officers killing Alejandro by shooting him over fourteen times. In the aftermath of his death, the police proceeded to harass the Nieto Family, in what we believe was a frantic attempt to fabricate a story to cover an unlawful police murder. Alex was a lifelong resident of Bernal Hill. Learn more about Alex’s Story!
