"Bell said his review of investigations by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and North Carolina's State Bureau of Investigations convinced him -- without a doubt -- that the officers acted correctly on July 6.
The trio responded to a home in Dallas after a neighbor reported suspicious activity at the empty property. Burris was there, with Mark and Sharon Stamey, looking for a place to crash after an all-day drug binge. Investigators say the officers turned up an outstanding warrant on Burris and returned to arrest him.
Bell says it is clear that Burris fired first. That shot was the one that was deflected by the pocket knife. The report says he was aiming at Officer Graham Kuzia when Kathryn Williamson, the third officer, fired.
"Her 45 caliber went down the barrel of the 25 caliber he had, and actually ripped the barrel open as it went in," Bell said.
Officer Shaw also fired. Burris was hit in the heart and in the head, and on several other places on his body.
The gun that jammed was later linked to all five murders that occurred between June 27 and July 2 in Gaffney, S.C. "
Now that's a great shot
Don't do things you don't want to explain to the Paramedics!
Stupidity should be painful.
Natural human reaction you focus on the threat. Great shooting!

Let's see that again. Talk about 1 in a million, or super concentration.
Now that is just an amazing story! Good job all the way around!
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
Not a "miracle shot" however... it's quite common for a shooter to focus on the gun of their opponent and where you are looking is likely to be where your shot will go! During simunitions training you'd better be wearing gloves!
All's well that ends well!
ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

I would love to see a photo of that...
Did you hear in the interview, it was her shot that split the barrel. Some ladies can really shoot!
Not to derail this thread, but it makes one consider, at least in my mind, if maybe having a second gun isn't worth it in case your primary gun gets shot.
My name is Biker and I don't carry a gun. I carry guns.
Most of us would perceive a gun pointed at us as a "threat". Therefore it stands to reason that guns do get shot not all to infrequently.
IIRC one of the FBI Agents in the Miami Shootout had his gun or gunhand shot during that shootout.
While I won't argue that having a second gun can be benificial. I will say that if your carrying as a CHL holder you should be creating distance and moving away from the person that is a threat, therefore making it that much harder for them to focus on the threat and shooting your gun.
More than likely the cops and robbers scenario posted here there wasn't much movement away from each other as they were trying to apprehend the BG.
Now in a SD situation where your having to go to the aid of a family member or someone else you would be moving towards the threat as well.
Things to consider for us all though.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

When doing "Hogan's Alley" runs where a target silhouette with a knife charges you from a 21 foot distance, you'd be surprised how many hits the knife takes.
Same with the picture silhouettes carrying guns and cell phones.
As Thumper already stated, if one does Simunitions for any amount of time, you will take a hit in the hand,its just a matter of time, as well as the gun and it hurts.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
