San Joaquin County prosecutors are investigating a fatal shooting involving security guard who fired his weapon during a physical struggle with another man in Stockton.
The Stockton Record reported that 52-year-old Mark Rego died Sunday while receiving treatment for his wounds.
Police spokesman Joe Silva says Rego and the unnamed guard got into a fight on Saturday near the Grouse Run Apartments, and that Rego managed to get the guard’s baton.
Police also arrested 38-year-old Gustava Rego on suspicion of battery of a security officer.
Gustava Rego told police she and Mark Rego were in a station wagon when the guard pepper-sprayed them while they were in the vehicle.
Prosecutors say a preliminary review indicates the shooting appears to have been in self-defense.
