Modesto police said Officer Thomas Miller with the Ceres Police Department was at Beyer Park around 10:30 at night with a woman. The park was closed at that hour. Investigators said 29-year-old Jason Moland confronted Miller with a BB gun and Miller responded with gunfire.
“We found an off-duty Ceres officer providing CPR to a man that had been shot on the ground,” Heather Graves, spokesperson for the Modesto Police Department,said.
Moland was transported to a nearby hospital where he died.
This happened in California where criminals are used to have unarmed citizens and therefore are basically walking ATM machines. And if you have any doubts, the following comment from the “victim’s” cousin is all the proof you need:

“Criminals prefer unarmed victims” is not some vacuous slogan but a harsh reality.
