***? That looks like a lawsuit to me.
It would appear that suspect has a handgun in his right hand. He turns to his left and points it toward the Officer approaching from his left (left side of the viewer's screen). At that time, the Officer he points the object at (approaching from the left of viewer's screen) ducks and moves slightly in an attempt to avoid him. Then the Officer moving in from the right side of the screen fires several times as suspect continues to move away, with the other Officer joining in and firing also. Of course, this is only deduction based on a bad dashcam video. Hard to say without knowing all of the facts.

These vids were in a thread a while back - here or elsewhere.
They show very well how one camera angle cannot tell the whole story. The first seems ''damning'' - the second makes things a lot clearer.

Looks like these cops are awful lucky> I can't believe they waited that long to shoot. The perp was clearly hopped up on something or very mentally ill but if you shoot at a cop be prepared to take some hits on the return.

I thought it was clear in the first one. BG turns and fires (shell casing flies before either LEO shoots), LEO #1 flinches/ducks, LEO #2 fires, LEO #1 fires, BG falls.
Wow. You really need to see the second vid.
Yeah that second one definaltey clears it up.
The officers showed amazing restraint.
All I can say is wow. I was pretty upset when I saw the video. That was until I saw the second video. It is very true that the camera does not tell the whole story. If all I had seen was the first video, i would have said they should be fired and arrested, but after seeing the second video, this guy was an idiot. I think the police showed great restraint (or stupidity depending on how you look at it) by not shooting him long before that. But it looks like a good shoot to me.
Also, did anybody look at how many shots the police took. Seems like an awful lot to me before the BG actually went down. Wonder if they missed, or hit him in non-COM spots. I know that some police officers don't train as much as we do, and also adrenaline plays a big role, but still, that was quite a few shots for a BG that looks like he wasn't more than ten feet away. Thanks for the link. It always good to see those that would prey on the innocent get exactly whats coming to them.
Gun control is hitting what you aim at...
Excellent lesson in getting all the available facts BEFORE making a decission! I tend to jump the gun sometimes.

The coppers went safely home to their families. The perfect end to a shift!

I counted seven between the two LEOs
In the real world people do not drop with 1 or 2 shots. Their training is to shoot until the threat stops, which they did.
Fear No Evil.
This is purely subjective, however, it appears that they could not possibly have missed more that once or twice and I'd dare say the final shot was CNS as the subject went down without raising his arms...

WOW that second camera angle clears everything up. I'm suprised they didn't start shooting when he first pointed the gun at them.
