The story of what came down is not true.My husband and son were on their way to work about noon yesterday and came upon the incident as it unfolded.They were driving north on Atlantic at Cortland when they pulled over because they saw a sheriff car coming down Atlantic with lights and sirens on.The female deputy made a u-turn and stopped in front of the motel.Right about then, a man who was shirtless came running out of the motel entrance towards the patrol car with his hands in the air.As he got to the door, the deputy had just gotten it open and was still sitting in the car when she shot 3 times.My husband and son saw the man crumple to the ground and he was rolling around in obvious pain.The other cops all rushed him and began to search him.About that time my husband left, because he didn't know if there would be more shooting or anything.He called the Century Station and talked to the Watch Commander about what he had witnessed.My husband's account and also the account given by another eyewitness, the woman into whose business the girl in question had run into, were virtually the same, except she said she heard him saying as he ran with his hands in the air,'It's me you are looking for", or something to that effect.My husband did not hear him saying anything.The account I heard on the news video was not correct. The gentleman did not pull up in a car and get out with his hand near his pocket.His hands were upraised in a submissive gesture.The poor guy's decision to run toward the patrol car with arms up in the air was a fatal mistake, because reality is the cops will shoot first and investigate later....I don't know what took place to lead up to this tragedy, but may he Rest in Peace.It is not a very pleasant experience to see someone shot to death, no matter what they may or may not have allegedly done.My condolences to the family.
