MODESTO, Calif. — Authorities are investigating the shooting death of a man by a Stanislaus County sheriff’s deputy who was responding to reports of a family dispute.  Sheriff’s officials say the deputy went to the home in the town of Keyes on Monday afternoon.  Sgt. Anthony Bejaran says the deputy first used a Taser on 32-year-old George Ramirez Jr. and called for backup. Moments later, the deputy reported that he fired shots.  Ramirez’s family told KCRA-TV that he was severely depressed and that they urged the deputy not to hurt him. George Ramirez Sr. says the deputy refused to listen and shot his son three times after he staggered back to his feet from the Tasering.  Sheriff’s officials declined comment on the family’s claims pending the investigation.
