For the officer, Have confidence in your actions. Remember each time you think about incident you responded to threat to the best of your ability!
I only know what is shown on internet news, but it appears you faced a many outcomes, as they ended bad. I would remind you it could have been your death, victims death, and offender leaving to strike agian.
Public and even fellow officers will 2nd guess you.
YOU alone will survive this with confidence in yourself.
Personal advise from a Trooper who has been 2nd guessed by other officers and public.
