In a news conference, Jim McDonnell says two officers fired on Douglas Zerby after he pointed what they thought was a gun but turned out to be a water hose nozzle. He says autopsy results are consistent with officers' story.
A 35-year-old man was struck 12 times by gunfire in the chest, arms and lower legs last December when police mistook a water hose nozzle he was holding for a gun, Long Beach Police Chief Jim McDonnell said at a news conference Monday.
