This is sooo sad and I literally live less then a block from where this happens. Supposedly the man was reaching for a gun, but yet there wasn't one. This man by the way that was shot has children and a full time job, family and friends. There wasn't anything suspicious, just that he had car trouble and was asking for help.

The "reaching for a gun" is standard cover up stuff.

He was killed because a PO thought he was suspicious.

And they will likley get away with it.
