SAN DIEGO (AP) - An off-duty Coronado police officer who shot Chargers linebacker Steve Foley was identified Tuesday as Aaron Mansker, who has been with the force since August 2005.
San Diego County Sheriff's Lt. Dennis Brugos, who is handling the shooting investigation, said he had no information on Mansker's background, prior employment, race, age or disciplinary history.
Capt. Glenn Revell, the sheriff's department spokesman, said most of that information was protected by privacy laws.
Coronado police spokeswoman Leah Corbin said Mansker was put on paid administrative leave, but she couldn't release any other details about Mansker. "That's out of our hands," she said, saying the sheriff's department was releasing any information.
