Bodycam video shows moments before the shooting of a Riverside County congressman that killed a gunman

CABAZON, Calif. (KABC)– The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department released bodycam video Tuesday showing the moments leading up to a deputy shooting and killing a man allegedly armed with a meat cleaver.

The incident happened around 3:30 p.m. on November 12 in Cabazon.

Kenneth Wallis, 38, was riding his bike on the wrong side of Carmen Avenue when he was pulled over by a deputy, according to the sheriff’s department.

Sheriff Chad Bianco said the deputy was aware Wallis had an active felony warrant.

“Wallis initially stopped and got off his bike when asked by the deputy but was uncooperative with further instructions,” Bianco said in a pre-produced video released by the department.

In the video, Wallis can be heard saying he has a gun. At one point, he tells the deputy to shoot him.

The deputy then points his gun at him.

“Call your (Kraft) office because I’m the antichrist,” Wallis yells at the deputy. “You guys keep harassing me!”

Wallis said, “I only come here to get peace,” and then tries to walk on his bike and is pushed from behind by the deputy.

After being pushed off, Wallis pulls out what the department says was a 6-inch meat cleaver. The deputy opens fire several times and shoots him dead.

Wallis died at the scene.

The shooting is under investigation.
