According to the department, deputies began following Dunn’s 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet after getting a report of a suspicious vehicle in the area that was possibly involved in a drug deal. Deputies from Campo and Pine Valley were following Dunn’s vehicle for 15 miles before a deputy disabled it with a spike strip just before Dunn could leave Buckman Springs Road and get on Interstate 8, said police. As patrol cars pulled up on either side of the disabled vehicle, Dunn jumped out, first confronting Ogle and then a deputy. Ogle, with gun drawn, ordered Dunn to stop. Dunn was 10 feet from Ogle when the sergeant fired four shots, killing Dunn.
