HUNTINTON BEACH, California (March 10, 2017)Steven Schiltz, 29, of Huntington Beach was shot and killed by police at the Huntington Beach Sports Complex in front of roughly 200 parents and children after he allegedly chased children with a bat-like object and a broken bottle, according to the Orange County Sheriff Coroner and the Orange County Register.

The incident took place about 7:28 p.m. Thursday night on field number 2 at 18120 Goldenwest Street, near the Huntington Beach Library. The 45-acre park comprises eight softball fields, batting cages and seven soccer fields as well as playground facilities.

The Huntington Beach Police Department responded to the chaotic scene where Schiltz was reportedly hitting trees with the bat-like object and running after children of all ages with a broken bottle. The fields were crowded with families in the bleachers watching a soccer game

As the suspect approached a large group of people, police shot at least one round at him and he died at the scene. There were no other injuries to bystanders.

A woman who is believed to be the suspect’s mother, told a local TV station that her son was mentally ill and had spent time at a psych ward last year.

The investigation into the police shooting continues and witnesses are asked to call detectives at 714-647-7055.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
