White supremacist gang member killed in shooting, SLO County sheriff says
San Luis Obispo County Sheriff Ian Parkinson speaks to the press after deputies shot and killed a white supremacist gang member who ambushed deputies and injured one on Thursday, Sept. 24, 2020, in Templeton. San Luis Obispo County Sheriff Ian Parkinson on Friday identified the white supremacist gang member killed in a Thursday shootout with deputies as Christopher Straub of Templeton. Straub, 38, was killed after he fled a pedestrian traffic stop in Templeton and ambushed two deputies, injuring one. The Sheriff’s Office had waited to identify him until his next of kin were notified of his death. Straub had been a repeat offender with 28 bookings in California jails and at least two prison sentences, Parkinson said at a news conference on Friday. He had an outstanding felony warrant and a history of multiple weapons charges, and the Sheriff’s Office gang task force had been investigating the known white supremacist gang member for illegal firearm manufacturing, Parkinson said. “He was known by us, he was wanted by us and he was considered armed and dangerous,” Parkinson said at a Thursday news conference.
