Arrested: Who Is Officer Edsaul Mendoza? 

Edsaul Mendoza was a Philadelphia police officer and a part of four plainclothes officers in the firearm theft investigation of Thomas Siderio and his friend NK.

NK and Siderio were connected partially with the firearm theft that Edsaul and his team were primarily investigating.

When NK and Thomas fleed the scene, Edsaul pursued them and fired three shots at Thomas.

Thomas's weapon or firearm was already absent and deployed 12 meters away from the crime site.

Even though he knew that Thomas was just 12, had no firearm to hurt him, and could be easily arrested, Edsaul Mendoza took a fatal third shot at Thomas that struck him through his back and killed him.

Edsaul was immediately fired by his Philadelphia department for his violation of the use of police force and he was arrested for first degree murder of a minor.
