San Diego police say a parolee who was wanted for questioning in a burglary has died after being shot by two state parole agents in a hotel parking lot Wednesday night.
Shots were fired in the 9300-block of Kearny Villa Road at a Best Western parking lot around 7 p.m.
Capt. Jim Collins says the agents and police went to the hotel after learning the 42-year-old man was there.
According to a homicide news release, officers had surrounded the hotel and were getting ready to call the parolee out of the room when he unexpectedly left the room with another man and walked to a car in the parking lot.
Two parole agents confronted the man, identified themselves and ordered him to comply, according to the release.
Collins says the man pointed a handgun at the agents, who fired.
No one else was hurt.
The parolee's name has not been released pending notification of his family. His companion, Jillian Cini, 29, was arrested for a parole violation according to police.
The agents involved in the shooting are three and 11-year veterans of the California Apprehension Team the news release states.
