Arraignment scheduled for probationer from Officer Wilson’s fatal shoot out
SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The probationer who authorities wanted to check on last week when a San Diego police officer was fatally shot is scheduled to be in court Thursday for an alleged probation violation, the District Attorney's Office announced today.
Probation officers and federal marshals went to a Skyline area apartment the night of Oct. 17 looking for Alex Ray Charfauros, 26, setting off a series of events that led to 50-year-old Officer Christopher Wilson being shot in the head.
Wilson, a 17-year-veteran, died at Scripps Mercy Hospital. His funeral is set for tomorrow.
Two other people were later found dead in a bedroom of the apartment. Authorities said Holim Lee, 30, committed suicide, and Lucky Xayasene, 27, was fatally shot — but it will not be known by whom until ballistics testing is completed.
Police say the probation officers and marshals went to the complex on South Meadowbrook Drive to make a compliance check on Charfauros, but the door to the apartment was slammed shut on them.
The agents forced entry and arrested Charfauros, then saw another man run into a back bedroom, police said. Charfauros was taken away, and San Diego police officers were called in to help.
Shots were fired when Wilson and several other SDPD officers kicked down the bedroom door. Officers returned fire and carried the Wilson outside.
SWAT officers surrounded the apartment and, when they went in around 6:45 a.m., the bodies of Lee and Xayasene were discovered.
