The family of a 32-year-old woman shot and killed by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent in Chula Vista Friday is outraged by what they believe was an unjustified shooting.
Police and family members confirmed that Chula Vista resident Valeria “Monique” Alvarado, also known as Valeria Tachiquin, was the woman killed in the agent-involved shooting around 1 p.m. Friday near Moss Street and Oaklawn Avenue.
Chula Vista officials said the shooting happened in the middle of the street in a residential area after a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent was allegedly assaulted by a woman driving a vehicle.
