Jimenez was fired in 2008 after shooting Mack "Jody" Woodfox in the back three times. Woodfox led police on short car chase and then pulled over in the Fruitvale neighborhood. A witness says he got out of the car with his hands up, but Jimenez says Woodfox reached for his waistband and he thought the other officer on the scene was in danger.
The Woodfox shooting was the second time in less than a year that Jimenez shot and killed an unarmed man. In 2007, he and another officer killed Andrew Moppin after a traffic stop. Moppin apparently ran and hid and then shouted and swore at officers.
John Burris is the attorney for Woodfox's family. He says he is asking the DA's office and the U.S. Attorney to look into the cases against Jimenez.
