Dist. Atty. Bonnie Dumanis said Thursday she understands the public's frustration with her office and the Oceanside Police Department for not releasing details about the March 15 incident in which an off-duty San Diego police officer shot and wounded a woman and her young son in their car. But she said that releasing information could jeopardize the investigation.
In a television interview, Dumanis suggested that the investigation was being hampered by Rachel Silva's refusal to talk to police. Silva and her 8-year-old son were shot by Officer Frank White. She has filed a damage claim with the city of San Diego alleging that White was enraged.
