Fatal Shooting of Francis De La Cruz
On May 28, 2017, at approximately 12:10 a.m., a security guard for Donner Lofts, located at 158 East St. John Street, received a noise complaint from a resident. The resident stated that there was a loud noise coming from Apartment 306, located on the third floor. The security guard was familiar with Apartment 306 and knew the resident, Fred Connor, from prior contacts. The security guard knocked on the door at Apartment 306, but Connor did not open it. Instead Connor told the security guard that if he knew better, he would stop knocking on the door. Connor also said that he had a bomb. Based on prior contacts, the security guard did not believe Connor. The security guard's supervisor called the police and asked the security guard to wait in the lobby.
