This incident was reported as local police were involved in this shooting. The sheriffs department is investigating.
I personally knew this person for several years. It would be hard for me to believe that he meant to harm the officers. And the question becomes, why did the police officers put themselves in a position that they were "trapped" and the only choice was to shoot him. This "shoot first, question later attitude" is an outrage.
