Escondido police Officer Ryan Banks already had seen shots fired at another officer last Friday night but the magnitude of what was happening didn’t fully register until the windshield of his own patrol car shattered.
Banks was fired upon by a man who went on a wild shooting spree using a car and guns belonging to a San Diego police detective, Escondido Lt. Bob Benton said.
The guns, a Beretta shotgun and a Sig Sauer 9 mm duty weapon, and ammunition had been locked in the trunk of a 2005 Honda Accord that was reported stolen March 17 while it was parked at a Chula Vista coffee shop, officials said.
According to the Chula Vista Police Department’s crime report of the incident, the San Diego detective had parked his car at the Starbucks on East Palomar Street about 8:40 a.m. As he was leaving he realized he had left his keys in the bathroom, and when he went to retrieve them they were gone. So was his car.
