CALIFORNIA PAROLE

Hoa Quach, Times of San Diego

Two San Diego County prosecutors will attend a parole hearing at Valley State Prison in Chowchilla Thursday to oppose the potential release of a man who was 17 when he killed a San Diego police officer in 1978.

Officer Archie Buggs, 30, was shot four times after he stopped a car driven by Jesus Cecena, a gang member in the Skyline neighborhood. Cecena fired five times at Buggs, then paused, walked toward the fallen officer and fired a final bullet into his head at point-blank range. Buggs died on the street, his hand still on his service revolver.
