A tense standoff in Rancho Cordova ended with a man who was an innocent bystander being shot by deputies.

John Sanchez showed the aftermath in his garage where his son was shot by police.

“He was right here, and I think he stepped out to look, and that’s when he got shot,” he said. “They got them marked off; they went right through the paneling and hit my car and they kept going and went out the other side of the wall.”

Deputies responded to Negrara Way on a report that Sanchez’s next-door neighbor, Ben Ledford, was firing up to 100 machine gun rounds at a home across the street, killing a dog inside the house.
