SummarySazzmann was spotted by a deputy responding to a "suspicious person" call about 1:25 a.m. in San Jacinto. The officer identified himself and instructed the male to show him his hands. The male failed to comply with the officer's instructions; instead he reached and grabbed a dark object from the center console. The officer, believing the object to be a weapon and fearing for his safety, fired his duty weapon, striking the male. Theodore Sazzmann, 53, died Oct. 18 at Hemet Valley Medical Center.
