IMPERIAL COUNTY, Calif. — A California sheriff’s office is mourning the loss of Deputy Anthony Redondo, who was killed in the line of duty on Saturday. 

According to KESQ, Redondo was responding to a call in an unmarked patrol car when he collided with another vehicle. Redondo died at the scene. 

“This was a young man who had a very bright future in front of him,” said Imperial County Sheriff Ray Loera to KYMA. “Obviously it’s going to be a significant loss to the agency and quite frankly to the community.” 

Redondo, 25, had been with the agency for less than a year. 

Few details about the crash were immediately released and the incident remains under investigation. Five others were injured, according to the report.
