An Orange County sheriff’s deputy shot and killed a man in San Clemente Wednesday afternoon after a struggle on the side of a street.

The shooting happened about 1:15 p.m. at El Camino Real and Avenida San Gabriel, in front of the Hotel Miramar, said Orange County sheriff’s Sgt. Dennis Breckner. Part of the confrontation was captured on camera by a witness.

Witnesses said deputies approached the man after he was jaywalking in a street.

Two deputies assigned to the department’s homeless outreach team were in the area when something prompted them to contact the man outside the hotel, Breckner said.
