VISTA, Calif. — Rachel Silva had a .15 blood-alcohol level and tested positive for marijuana when she and her 8-year-old son were shot by off-duty San Diego police Officer Frank White, according to search warrant documents unsealed Monday.

The documents also say that White was “in fear of his and his wife's safety” and didn't see Silva's son in the passenger seat when he fired five shots at Silva's car.
