There is a lot more to this story than what has been published here so far - caught in the act for burglary, carrying a gun, attempting to flee in a patrol car . . . check another on line source.

Was the gun loaded? Did he shoot first? Did he even raise the gun at the officers? Attempting to flee in a patrol car? Shoot the damn tires...
