1 Police Shooting of Ashley MacDonald — On Aug. 25, two Huntington Beach officers shot and killed 18-year-old Ashley MacDonald after she allegedly lunged at them with a knife. According to Orange County sheriff's deputies, MacDonald had fought with her mother earlier, saying that she had been drugged and date-raped the night before. During the fight, MacDonald reportedly cut her mother, Lisa Guy, superficially several times with a knife. Later that morning, responding to a 911 call of a hysterical girl wandering in the area, officers Read Parker, 28, and Shawn Randell, 26, found MacDonald at Sun View Park, holding a knife.
