This is the press release for the RPD facebook Page.
"On June 5, 2010 at approximately 3:42 PM a Rolla Police Officer observed a vehicle run a stop sign near 18th Street & Forum Drive. The officer then conducted a traffic stop on the suspect vehicle near the intersection of Forum Drive & Eastwood Court. As the officer was exiting his vehicle the front seat passenger of the suspect vehicle exited with a gun and began running in a Southwest direction. The officer verbally instructed the suspect the drop the gun and to stop. The suspect later stopped, turned and pointed the gun toward the officer. At that time, the officer fired several shots and struck the suspect. An ambulance from the Phelps County Regional Medical Center was summoned to the scene. Upon their arrival it was determined that the suspect had died from the gunshot wounds. The officer was not injured during this violent confrontation. The deceased is identified as Audy James Faulkner age 18 of Rolla, Missouri. The deceased's next of kin have been notified.
This incident is currently under investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol's Division of Drug and Crime Control, the Phelps County Coroner's Office and the Rolla Police Department's Internal Affairs Division. As this is an ongoing investigation, no further comments will be made at this time."

Digging a little deeper Audy faulkner is on casenet and has been charged with a number of things, mostly minor, except for 10PH-CR--768, Robberty - 1st Degree and Burglary - 1st Degree. Since these charges are listed on one case, My bet - he broke into someones house while they were at home and held them at gun point, taking their money, property, dugs, whatever.

This shows he uses violence to do things. It's just so sad his parents, family, friends have to go through this, but they should have taught him right in the first place.

You're right, wtf, it only matters what the Officer prevented happening in the future which is likely a lot of victimizing folks in this community. Give the officer a medal. NO BIG LOSS!

As for him being a 'human'(which is more than you can say for us) what do you mean by that? That he was your 'boy'? That he did lines of meth with you? What qualified him as 'more human' than us? Because he robbed and stole and shared his habit with you? He was no big loss and neither would you be, wtf. This community is BETTER today than it was last week.

I don't know about any of you, but I wouldn't want someone talking about me like that when I die. The boy may have made alot of mistakes but he was only 18 and did not deserve to die. What would you think if that was your son? If you're a good parent then you know, no matter what your children do you would always love them and you would be heart broken.

Gosh, Mike, you seem angry. I didn't know this kid but he was just a kid, don't be so mean on here he has a family and friends. What do you expect them to do agree with you. Just remember there for the grace of God go I.. I will pray for the family and for you too Mike, I think your heart needs some love put back in it and I think God is the way

If he had good parents he wouldnt have been doing what he did. His parents failed him, 'people are mean'. If his friends dont want to hear the truth they should spare us the stupid conspiracy theories trying to paint him as a victim. He wanted to live the thug life and thats what he did.

Gosh aunt bea......he wasnt just a kid he was a violent felon who robbed and stole and tried to shoot a police officer. You wouldnt be so sympathetic if you ran in to him in your house in the middle of the night. Thats the difference between you and me. I know what was probably prevented in the future by this 'kid'. As for his friends its true without fail that birds of a feather.......its his thug friends who should be thinking 'there but for the grace of god......' and put down the drugs and the thug life forever fantasy and become productive members of society.

Mike, I do agree with you about the life style and such, but.... a public forum such as this is not the place to trash this kid. My grandmother taught me no to speak ill of the dead but in my time I have done just that, but I try not to be so ill bred on a public forum that his family and friends obviously loved...Just saying to you don't be so angry.

Well, aunt bea, nobody would be trashing anyone if some individuals didn't pick forums like this to make up lies about the officer who was doing what he was given the authority, duty and responsibility to do, i.e. protect you and me. Anyone willing to shoot him to keep from getting captured was willing to shoot your or me.

As for being angry, i'm not. I'm making a point. The problem here is that folk are calling this a 'tragedy'......if by tragedy you mean it's a tragedy his parents didn't raise him better, and his father set a bad example in his life, you are correct. If you mean it's a tragedy that he used his GOD GIVEN free will to turn toward criminality and brigandage, you're right. If you mean it's a tragedy he tried to kill a police officer, you're right.

But if you mean it's a tragedy he himself got shot, you're wrong. It's actually very fortunate he got shot and was unable to harm anyone else. That's the point i'm making in counter-point to the brainless wits who want to make out as if the officer did something wrong.

The reality is that this officer performed his duty, responsibility and obligation to protect this community and it's citizens to the utmost, and as a result deserves to be hailed as a hero......not to be backhandedly leveled as someone who did something wrong by having his actions called a 'tragedy'. He was faced with a dangerous felon and made the right choice.

I'm not trashing this officer I realize he done what he was trained to do. I also know if you point a gun at a cop you will more than likely be killed. That being said trashing this kid his family and friends is not necessary.will do no good at this point. IMO

Aunt Bea and anyone else who wants to see the type of person he was and his friends are need to see the utube video! They show themselves messed up on drugs and even show the drugs. Everyone has a choice no matter what their name is or who their parents are. If your parents don't teach you right from wrong, society certainly does. We have laws for a reason and some of them are to protect you from yourself. ie: drugs, robbery, ect., ect.. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. Don't point guns at anyone without expecting to be shot yourself. I feel for the young man and his family because life is so very precious, but some just don't care and blame everyone else for the way life treats them. Here is a big hint...Life doesn't treat you any certain way, your choices determine how your life continues or ends.

I just don't feel I have the right to judge any one. Not this kid, his parents his friends, the cops no one. I am a human that has fallen short before God. I will leave the judging to the All Mighty certaintly not my self.....
