Amilcar Perez Lopez was a 21-year-old immigrant from Chiquimula, Guatemala. He was a construction worker and worked in restaurants throughout San Francisco. Amilcar was killed by SFPD on Thursday evening, 2-26-15. While SFPD contends he had a knife and refused to drop it, witnesses contend that he had already dropped it when 5 to 6 shots were fired at him.
The official autopsy that preceded release of Amilcar's body for memorial and return to his parents in Guatemala confirmed the witness statements.
