    Those officers faced on of the worst case scenarios because that had to approach an open passageway perpendicular to their path. In Hue City as we cleared building the most anxiety producing situation was coming to intersexting hallway. You just do not know what you might find in that hallway. Those officers maintained their cool in a harrowing situation. Hats off to them. As for the perp, stupid gets hurt or killed when not complying with a police officer’s commands. Glad to hear that the LEOs are both OK and not subjects of a probe.

    Hate to be a doubting Thomas— or second guess good guys— but.
    Better use of cover could have bought the officer more time to evaluate.
    It appears the individual was in the process of dropping the gun when he was shot.
    Just saying.

    There was no cover to be had. Just a long flat side of a building, then the gap/alleyway, between the building. Which is then seen, an armed individual, in plain sight.

    To point a semi-auto pistol, from holding it in a hand...just a tilt of the wrist, then press trigger repeatedly.
    Shots do not have to be aimed in the classic style, to kill, or drastically injure. You just have to be where that round is moving to.

    The criminal person could have had a gun in his hand, expecting a rip off by another drug dealer? Who knows. The Officers administered first aid, once they had secured the injured individual.

    Leaving the fallen gun were it fell, good move.

    The command to dispose of one's gun should be all the warning that is necessary - anything past disobeying that and you're responsible for your fate.

    So who is this Will that everybody fires at, what did he do, and how come he's not dead yet??

    He had at least seven seconds to get around to lending that appearance, accurate or not. We know how long it takes to bring the gun-in-hand to a firing position and squeezing off a round.

    Interesting mindset. Apparently people do not realize you can get shot for being stupid.

    I think it may be the lack of reinforcing this idea in their day to day lives puts them at a serious disadvantage when required to comply with an officers commands.

    It seemed to me the officer shot the man as he was dropping his weapon. Perhaps the officer saw a threat the video did not catch.

    Like the part where the woman is standing behind the BG.........couldn't see if she ducked or jumped the lead.
    Why did the Moron buy a ladder...... he's takin' his case to a higher court.

    The officer waited a lot longer than I would. Once the perp saw that they were cops, he should have opened his hand and dropped the gun. He was still placing his bet. These younguns' sure do talk a lot when they should be shootin'. Just my oldpinion.

    I could see there could be questions about this one just based on the video, but the back story assuming they are facts weigh in here. Wasn't some random encounter. It was a drug call, he was wanted for suspicion of murder, had held a female against her will, and was quoted as saying he wouldn't be taken alive. All that adds up to not getting much benefit of the doubt by responding LEOs.

    Gun in hand, sees cop, gun comes up, perp goes down. Just like it ought to be.

    Oh Matt.....

    You can't possibly tell me that with a strait face. How many armed BG's have you taken down? Of those how many, while at gunpoint, unbidden wanted to draw their gun only to lay it down when ordered to have their hands in plain sight?

    Sure, use of cover is always a good thing, however, sometimes things evolve very quickly.

    No, Matt, he was drawing the gun, not putting it down.
    A man has got to know his limitations.
