Relatives Protest Decision

OXNARD, Calif. -

On Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012 relatives said Alfonso Limon Jr., 21, and his brother worked-out at Pacifica High and then started walking home along Garfield Avenue.

At the same time, Oxnard Police said a traffic stop turned violent and officers shot at suspects who police say shot at them. Two people died including Limon.

Ventura County District Attorney Greg Totten announced on Wednesday that none of the  nine officers involved would face criminal charges.  The D.A.'s report called  Limon "innocent", but said the officer's actions were "justified."

Limon's sister and mother joined dozens of friends for a silent protest outside the Oxnard Police station Wednesday night and again at the scene of the 2012 hooting in La Colonia.

The family settled a wrongful death lawsuit for nearly $7 million with the department.  Rebacca Limon said she would gladly return every penny to have her brother back.
