Man accused in deputy ambush scrawled extremist 'Boogaloo' phrases in blood - 2020-06-12
Steven Carrillo, a California man who was charged with murder after he ambushed two Santa Cruz County deputies, scrawled phrases tied to an online far-right extremist movement in blood on a car shortly before he was detained.
Carrillo killed Sgt. Damon Gutzwiller, critically injured another deputy and threw pipe bombs at police on June 6th, Santa Cruz District Attorney Jeffrey S. Rosell alleged on Thursday.
Before he was apprehended, Carrillo scrawled the word "boog" and "I became unreasonable" in blood on the hood of a car. "Boog" is short for boogaloo, a far-right anti-government movement that began on the extremist site 4chan and aims to start a second American civil war.
