Officer Jesse Paderez was accidentally shot and killed at 0645 hours when his Sig P-220, .45 caliber service weapon, fell to the ground and discharged, striking him in the head.

He had gone to the police station to pickup a patrol car before going to a training course on radar usage and was carrying his service weapon and other items in his arms. As he walked across the parking lot, his weapon, still in its holster, fell to the ground and discharged when the hammer struck the pavement.

Officer Paderez had been employed with the San Fernando Police Department for ten years. He was one of 13 brothers and sisters.

Jesse and I worked patrol together for a few years and it was never a dull moment. He often got mad at the rest of us if we made a mess in the station or the officers' lounge and he was always cleaning. For those of us still around, we often tell stories involving Jesse and the hunting trips and weekend trips to Laughlin etc.

We miss you brother
