I like how the cop immediately turns this into the homeowners fault for coming out armed and that's why he was shot.
"If he had waited or stayed inside or called himself there would have been an opportunity for everyone to be identified."Why didn't the police identify themselves when they got there? According to the statement they didn't have opportunity because the homeowner hadn't dialed 911?
He armed himself and came out of the building. SO WHAT. In doing this he caused the officers to fear for there safety. MAYBE but They reacted as one would expect to defend themselves. FROM WHAT? Did he raise the gun act in a way to threaten them make a gesture or verbal statement indicating intent to harm? I doubt it because as soon as he saw them it would have been clear the were cops. Lights sirens uniforms all those types of indicators that we use and are expected to use BEFORE determining to use deadly force in defense.
Police say right as they walked up they heard a gunshot and saw muzzle flash. If he was actually shooting at the suspect with the cops being so close wouldn't they see a suspect fleeing. If it was the suspect shooting the homeowner wouldn't the guy be bolting out the door running or fleeing and do you think the suspect is going to stop for the cops?
