A Los Angeles police officer accused of fatally shooting a 30-year-old Cuban immigrant in the back did so because he was angry that the man had beaten him with his own baton in a street scuffle in South-Central Los Angeles, the officer's partner told a police tribunal Monday. Nervous and often barely audible, Officer Daniel Perez testified that Officer Rodney W. Kelley shot Miguel Angel Herrera on Oct. 24, 1984, after Herrera wrested Kelley's baton from him and hit him with it.
