The state attorney general’s office is monitoring the investigation, and the sheriff’s department did not immediately have a comment Wednesday.Guardado’s family commissioned an independent autopsy after the sheriff’s department put a “security hold” on coroner’s records. Attorney Adam Shea called for release of the official autopsy in a statement and released a black-and-white photo showing bullet holes in Guardado’s back.“Andres was a good boy, he was our son and he had so much life ahead of him. Our son did not deserve to die this way,” parents Cristobal and Elisa Guardado said in the statement.Guardado also a had graze wound to his left forearm, according to the July 26 independent autopsy. Preliminary toxicology testing showed the teen did not have any drugs or alcohol in his system, the report said.Authorities have said deputies saw Guardado talking to someone in a car blocking a driveway and that Guardado had a loaded “ghost” gun that appeared to have been pieced together from different parts, lacked a serial number and had an illegal high-capacity magazine.The department said Guardado saw the deputies and ran, leading to a chase. A deputy fired at Guardado, who was struck in the torso and died at the scene. No specific details of why the shooting occurred have been released. Investigators have said they don’t believe Guardado fired at deputies.The sheriff’s department has said he was too young to be licensed as a guard and wasn’t wearing a uniform.The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors late last month called for oversight of the investigation by the county’s inspector general. The board also asked its counsel to report on alternative plans for an independent probe.Tags :Andres Guardadoman killedshot in backshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentFBI serves arrest warrant at downtown buildingAlzheimer’s Foundation of America Providing Free Memory Screenings Digitally Nationwide Starting July 8You Might Also LikeCrimeCRIME WATCHNewsCrime WatchGuest Author2 days agoCrimeFeaturedKnife-wielding woman arrested during L.A.

‘Jeopardy!’ legend Ken Jennings says it’s “inevitable” he will face-off against “‘Jeopardy!’ James” Holzhauer

first_imgABC(LOS ANGELES) — What is “inevitable?”Jeopardy! legend Ken Jennings selected that response when asked if he might one day face off against recently-unseated champ James Holzhauer.  Holzhauer’s winning streak made headlines before coming to an end just shy of breaking the regular season prize money record earlier this week.“It’s got to be inevitable,” Jennings, 45, said in an exclusive interview with Good Morning America when asked if there would ever be a Jennings-Holzhauer showdown on the beloved game show.“But Jeopardy! only does those special tournaments so often,” he added. “And obviously I can’t get 29-year-old Ken to show up with his sleek, 29-year-old brain, it’s got to be me with my broke-down brain.”Jennings, of Seattle, holds the Jeopardy! record for the most consecutive games won — 74 — and the highest winnings in regular season play — $2,520,700 — according to the show’s Hall of Fame.Jennings said he was cheering for Holzhauer during his 32-week winning streak, saying, “For many years, I have assumed that the record is beatable.”“It seemed like he might be the guy, the chosen one, so I was very excited,” he said. “I wanted to see it come down to the wire, I wanted to see if it could be beaten because I think it can be done.”“He was so close to the cash record,” Jennings added. Jennings even equated Holzhauer’s Jeopardy! prowess to the AI-powered IBM supercomputer Watson, who famously beat Jennings during a Jeopardy! match in 2011.“Watching James on that show, he feels as close to Watson as you can get and still have a pulse,” he said. “My guess is playing against James is going to be a lot like playing against Watson.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
