DANVILLE, Calif. (KGO) — A Contra Costa sheriff’s deputy was sentenced to six years in prison on Friday for shooting and killing a man in 2018 during a pursuit in Danville.

Andrew Hall was convicted of assault with a firearm and causing grievous bodily harm in the 2018 shooting that killed 33-year-old Laudemere Arboleda.

The jury was hanged for intentional homicide.

Arboleda was killed in a chase after nearby residents reported him acting suspiciously.

Hall shot Arboleda nine times while Arboleda was in the midst of a mental health crisis and was walking away from police at 6 mph, Arboleda’s family said in a statement.

“Today brings some closure to our family,” said Laudemer’s mother, Jeannie Atienza. “Officer Andrew Hall was sentenced to 6 years in state prison. Although we may never see our Laudemer again, we are grateful to be held accountable to Officer Hall. Our family has been through the hell and it still hurts us until this day that it took 3 years to bring charges against him, that they tried to cover up what happened, and that the police in Danville let Officer Hall take another life from a mentally ill man, Tyrell Wilson. We still want Officer Hall to be retried on the charge of voluntary manslaughter for what he did to my son. The treatment preferential treatment given to Hall as an officer throughout this trial only added to our trauma.

After the shooting, the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office internal review found that Hall had not violated any policies and allowed him to continue working.

Officer Hall was also on administrative leave for shooting and killing 32-year-old Tyrell Wilson in Danville.
