“APD says the man who was eventually shot by police was a suspect in a Friday menacing incident that happened near I-225 and E. Mississippi Avenue. In that incident, a person reported a man (Troy Michael Jacques) had pointed a gun at them while near the intersection. Police were unable to find the suspect or his vehicle that night, but on Saturday night, the same officers came across the vehicle just before 11:30 p.m. near the intersection of E. Smoky Hill Road and S. Chambers Road. Chief Nick Metz said that officers stopped the vehicle, but shortly afterward, the suspect got out of his vehicle and started walking toward the officers’ vehicle. APD said the man ignored officers’ orders, then walked back to his own car. The department said that as an officer started to “go hands on” with the suspect, he pulled out a handgun, and an officer shot the man.” “This man is my nephew and he had misdemeanors nothing serious. His van was riddled with bullets. In the news conference they said they tried to take his gun away and wrestled with him and the gun went off. Multiple gunshot wounds don’t match their story. He was not a violent person. What will be done????” (141)

“Kingman Police Department was called to the RV park around 8:15 p.m., and the officer spoke with the person who reported the possible domestic violence incident. The officer then attempted to contact the people in the RV where the alleged domestic violence happened. The male suspect” (Michael Weber) “confronted the officer and a fight ensued, at which point the man was shot. No officers or bystanders were hurt.” video (142)

“Police said the incident began when Gregware’s ex-wife, Melissa Gregware, told police she was concerned about him. She said Gregware” (Benjamin Gregware) “was slurring his words and had called to tell her that he purchased ammunition at Walmart in St. Albans. Gregware recently had been laid off from his job, his ex-wife said, was struggling with alcohol addiction, and was scheduled to visit with their children later that day, according to a statement from Maj. Glenn Hall, commander of the Vermont State Police criminal division. State Trooper Jay Riggen spoke with Gregware on the phone for about 20 minutes while Gregware was driving south on Interstate 89, Birmingham said. Gregware told the trooper he was going to drive until he ran out of gas and then “end it,” according to the statement. Trooper Brown and Officer Greenough stopped Gregware on the side of the southbound lanes near mile marker 69 in Bolton. Gregware was driving a red Honda Accord. Birmingham said the officers drew their guns and ordered Gregware out of the car, rather than approaching on foot, because the stop was high-risk. Police said Gregware stepped out of the car and pointed a gun at his own head. Birmingham said Gregware did not aim the weapon at the officers at any point during the traffic stop but refused to put the firearm down and started walking toward the officers. Maj. Hall said Gregware was struck by at least three shots, out of a total of 12 rounds fired. Brown is believed to have fired seven times, and Greenough is believed to have fired five times.” (144)

“The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner has identified the man who police say killed his 86-year-old father and was fatally shot by an officer during a standoff late Tuesday night in the University Hills neighborhood. The man, identified as 52-year-old Peter Le, had been shot multiple times, the medical examiner said. His father was identified as Quyen Le. During a news conference on Wednesday afternoon, Denver Police Major Crimes Division Commander Bob Archer said at around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, a man called 911 and said his brother was harassing his elderly father in a home in the 2200 block of South Clermont Street, near the intersection of Interstate 25 and Colorado Boulevard. When a Denver Police officer arrived, Archer said a third brother was outside the home, and said Peter Le was inside and threatening their father with a gun.That’s when Archer says the officer entered the home and took out his weapon. The officer, who is a 22-year veteran of the department, could hear a man yelling inside. Archer says Peter Le was holding a knife and gun next to his elderly father as he was lying in bed. The officer repeatedly told him to drop his weapons, Archer said, but the man refused, was visibly agitated and threatened to hurt his father. The officer continued to negotiate with Peter Le for around six minutes, Archer said. “At this time, what we know is the suspect shot the father and the officer shot the suspect,” Archer said. “The timing of these shots was nearly simultaneous.” The Quyen Le died at the scene, and his son was taken to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries. The officer was not injured.” (150)

“The Wabash County Sheriff’s and Huntington County Sheriff’s Departments responded to a burglary call shortly before 4:30 p.m. According to ISP, the tip led the deputies to Wabash CR 400 North near Wabash CR 500 East. When the deputies arrived, they found the 29-year-old male suspect in a pickup truck in a field. Officials say evidence indicated the male was armed with a shotgun. ISP says there was an incident that led three Wabash deputies and one Huntington deputy to fire gunshots at the suspect. The man died from gunshot wounds, though no officers were injured.” (153)

“Cocoa Beach Police Chief Scott Rosenfeld said officers were called to the Royal Colonial Condos on South Banana River Boulevard around 10:30 p.m. when a woman reported that her husband, who she believed may have been intoxicated, fired a gun inside their home. Officers said they encountered the man, who they believed was armed, when they arrived at the home and fired their weapons, according to the police chief. “The officers were put in a position to use deadly force,” Rosenfeld said.” (158)

“A mother is grieving after her son was shot and killed by U.S. Marshals Friday afternoon on First Creek Road near Sissonville. The U.S. Marshals Service says they were trying to arrest the suspect, who’d escaped from a halfway house. … The family tells us the man who was shot was 39-year-old Odrey Paul Reed. Reed’s mother, Connie Burdette, says she was afraid this was going to happen, and Thursday night she tried unsuccessfully to talk her son into turning himself in. “He had 82 days left in the halfway house, and he would’ve been free,” Burdette told WSAZ. Burdette says marshals came to her house in Sissonville Thursday night trying to find him. “The federal marshal looked at me and said, ‘You better get ahold of him tonight,’ ” Burdette said, “and I said ‘I will if I can,’ and she said ‘if you don’t, we’re going to hunt him down like a dog and kill him.’ Those were her very words.” … When asked if she knew why her son didn’t want to turn himself in, Burdette answered, “He said they were mean to him at the halfway house. He said they abused him and were mean to him.” Burdette says her son was shot outside his brother’s home. “My son lost his life for nothing, for 82 days,” she said. “That’s wrong.” Burdette says her son had been working at a dollar store in Charleston.” (159)

Saturday, crime scene tape remained along a fence in the median. Officers attempted to subdue him and he began to punch violently, according to TPD, and hit an officer. Sgt. David Northway used his Taser and handcuffed him. … Parker was given sedatives by emergency medical service officials to keep him from overheating, was loaded into an ambulance and stopped breathing. He was revived by CPR and hospitalized. The cause of his death is still being investigated.” (160)
