263 Stephon Clark was covered in a stand alone post at chamblee54.

279 Danny Thomas is another suspicious case. “Sister of suspect shot by deputy: He hadn’t been the same since his children were murdered”“Relatives say the suspect had never been the same after his wife, Shebonah Thomas, allegedly drowned their two children in a bathtub last year and threw their bodies under a neighbor’s house. … Sheriff Ed Gonzalez says the man was holding an object and was approaching the deputy despite his several commands to stop. “He thought he saw something in his hand, what it was exactly, we’re not sure yet,” Gonzalez said. “But the male kept advancing toward the deputy.” The deputy fired one shot and killed the man, according to Gonzalez … Family members of the man who was killed have identified him as Danny Thomas, 35, who they claim was severely depressed. Thomas later died at the hospital. “We’ve been through everything together he had my back through everything,” said Thomas’ sister Kita Thomas. “And he promised me wouldn’t leave me, and they didn’t leave. They took him from me.” Thomas’ family members said the man had been through an unimaginable tragedy recently. KHOU 11 reported on Thomas’ wife, Sheborah Thomas’ arrest after she allegedly killed the couple’s two children. Police say Sheborah Thomas drowned the children in a bath tub of a home in the Third Ward and then put their bodies beneath a neighbor’s house. Danny Thomas was serving a prison sentence for drug possession at the time of the murders. Family members say the father was never the same after that.” “Witnesses said Thomas was “walking in the middle of the intersection of Imperial Valley and Greens Road with his pants around his ankles, talking to himself and hitting vehicles as they passed by,” according to a press release Friday from HPD, which is leading the investigation because the shooting occurred within city limits. “Thomas then struck a white vehicle, and the driver exited and engaged in a physical altercation with the suspect,” Houston Police said. The deputy saw the altercation and stopped his car. HPD said Thomas ignored verbal commands from the deputy and “continued to advance” toward him. “Fearing for his safety, the deputy discharged his duty weapon, striking Thomas once in the chest.” video (279)

270 Steven Nguyen is another case raising eyebrows. “Archer said that officers had information that the man who escaped from custody while he was at Denver Health Monday morning, Mauricio Venzor-Gonzalez, was in the vehicle, which turned out not to be true. Officers had been watching an address in Aurora earlier that day while keeping an eye out for Venzor-Gonzalez, and watched as the SUV, which contained Landeros and Nguyen, left the home. Aurora officers chased the vehicle and Denver officers joined in. Police followed the two into a neighborhood near East 41st Avenue and Colorado Blvd. in Denver. Archer said officers were “acting on information” they received that Venzor-Gonzalez was the passenger in the vehicle. Archer said Thursday that officers saw the two men rummaging through their vehicle, and that officers “believed that actions being made inside the car were efforts to locate a weapon.” As such, Archer said, the officers feared for their safety and fired at the vehicle. The suspects’ vehicle went down an embankment. Archer said Thursday the officers continued to try and get Landeros and Nguyen out of the vehicle through verbal commands, but that the two “refused to comply” and continue to rummage through their vehicle. She said officers then fired at the vehicle again. When they finally approached the car, they took both Landeros and Nguyen out of the vehicle. Both had been shot and were taken by ambulance to an area hospital, where Nguyen was pronounced dead. Archer said that the men never fired at officers, but that a loaded handgun was found inside the vehicle they were driving, which she added was stolen.” (270)

“They say Bobby Lovin had an active domestic violence protective against him and he had allegedly broken into his wife’s home, according to the report. The report said Lovin was wielding an axe when Casteel got to the scene. Lovin ignored the deputy’s commands to drop the weapon and was shot when he moved closer to his wife. Casteel fired once, killing Lovin.” (261)

“State Police said around 4:30 P.M. Monday afternoon KSP and the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a person doing donuts in a field in southern Daviess County. Police say when they arrived they found an abandoned black Jeep Cherokee. Authorities were told the driver ran into a nearby house that wasn’t his. KSP says they searched the house and the male suspect ( Rueben T. Ruffin Jr. ) ran back to the jeep and drove off. Authorities gave chase but the suspect crashed and got out and started running. A state police trooper was the first law enforcement office to catch up with the suspect. KSP says the suspect pulled out a gun and refused to drop it as the trooper demanded. KSP says their trooper then shot the man.”(267)

“Authorities at the Person County Sheriff’s Office told ABC11 that the incident began when officers responded to an eviction call Tuesday morning on Antioch Church Road. Deputies found Pittman (Kent Earl Pittman ) sitting on the back porch with a handgun to his head and called for backup. After more than 70 minutes of negotiations, authorities claim Pittman then pointed the weapon at the deputy. Reports show Lt. Ryan Weaver, Sgt. Michael Rogers, and Sgt. Dustin Harris fired at Pittman. He was transported to Duke Medical Center where he was later pronounced deceased.” (271)

“Mannford police about 2:30 p.m. received a call from a woman who was concerned about a man (Mark Allen Lunn) who reportedly showed up at her residence near the 100 block of Greenbrier Circle to apparently talk about a vehicle for sale. The woman said the man made her uncomfortable, prompting her to call 911, said Marty Wilson, a special agent with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. Two officers soon arrived at the scene and encountered the man, who walked about 100 yards south of where he was standing while the officers followed. Wilson said the man was not cooperating with police and at some point pulled out a “large knife” and “made a move toward one of the officers.” The officers opened fire at the man an unknown number of times, killing him.” (275)

“The incident happened about 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Our Place Community Center in Littlefield, TX. Angel Uolla, 18, was taking instruction for his high school equivalency certificate when he repeatedly stabbed his teacher, Norma Jean Bartley, 75, and slashed at two others … After a brief foot pursuit, a Littlefield police officer fatally shot the attacker after he refused to drop his knife and threatened the officer, according to a statement from the Texas Department of Public Safety.” (276)

“OWASSO, OK The man shot and killed by Owasso Police has been identified as Duane Preciado, a man who spoke to News On 6 about gun safety in February while at a local gun range. Owasso Police say they were called to a home in the 15100 block of East 108th Place Wednesday night, March 21, after a report of a disturbance. When two officers got to the home, Preciado came out of the house with an AK-47 rifle and a pistol, according to Deputy Chief of Police Jason Woodruff. “Both officers yelled commands for him to drop the weapon,” the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said in a statement. “The officers then backed up to their patrol cars for cover as they continued yelling commands. Preciado began advancing toward the officers while making threatening comments. Both officers fired their weapons.” The 39-year-old man died a short time later at a Tulsa hospital. Preciado’s family told News On 6 he was a 16-year veteran of the United States Air Force who suffered from post traumatic stress disorder. Anchor Brian Dorman interviewed Preciado while he was teaching his fiance to shoot.” (277)

“Wednesday afternoon, police responded to report of man with gun on the 200 block of Amazon Avenue. A bystander said the suspect was in a barber shop and police went in and saw the suspect sitting on a bench inside. Sources say the suspect opened fire first and an officer was hit; four others were injured in the exchange of gunfire. Police say an officer and five other people, including the suspect, were shot in a San Francisco barber shop on Wednesday. Videos from witness shows the injured cop crawling away from the scene while other officers respond to the scene. The suspect in the incident has been identified as 21-year-old Suisun City resident Lehad Eid” (278)

“According to the Largo Police Department, a suspect attempted to pin the officer between his vehicle and the gas pumps and barriers at the Wawa store at 1215 N. Missouri Avenue around 5:55 p.m. Officer Matthew Steiner … fired several shots in self-defense, hitting the suspect.” (285)

“According to police, officers responding to a home in the 900 block of 16th Street found the alleged victim of the domestic violence doused in gasoline and Vega (Robert Vega) holding “an incendiary device.” Police say that is when the officer opened fire, hitting the suspect.” (286)
