    "A Texas man was gunned down in his own driveway by police officers yesterday morning after he came out of his house to check out a neighbor's burglar alarm...Fort Worth Police Cpl Tracey Knight told reporters that the officers - both rookies who have been with the department for less than a year - 'felt threatened' by the elderly grandfather - and shot him."

    I wonder if he called 911 first.

    Unless he was overtly engaging in actually-threatening behavior, it's hard to imagine how a nearby resident coming out onto his own driveway constitutes a dire, life-threatening situation for two responding LEO's.
