Cops shoot wrong man after he answers the door to his house....



quote:

Lake County Sheriff's Office deputies shot and killed a man they assumed was an attempted murder suspect on Sunday, but they now know they shot the wrong man.


quote:

"It's just a bizarre set of circumstances. The bottom line is, you point a gun at a deputy sheriff or police office, you're going to get shot," Herrell said.

Residents said the unannounced knock at the door at 1:30 a.m. may be the reason why the tragedy happened.


quote:

Officials said the deputies did not identify themselves because of safety reasons.

ETA: What would you do with 2 grown men banging on your door at 1:30 am...who dont identify themselves as police?

Yeah right.

eta: There's more to this story than the officers are letting on... this dude was probably involved with some kind of underhanded dealings with these cops and shite went south and they "accidentally" shot "the wrong man"

I'm not gonna lie, I would never get shot by the cops because I dress nice, have good manners, and own nice things.

If these people were less sketch they wouldn't get shot by the cops, therefore I say the cops were justified in the shooting and good riddance.

I'm just saying, cops aren't going breaking down doors in nice neighborhoods.

They're breaking down doors in shitty neighborhoods, I bet the dude that got shot had an impala with those spinner hubcaps and tinfoil on his windows. One less criminal IMO.

You are going to be nice and have good manners to someone knocking on your door at 1:30am? And wth does having nice things have to do with it?

And how spooked do you have to be to answer the door with a gun drawn without looking out the window/through the peephole to see who is knocking?

Wow this is truly tragic. While I blame the cops more than the guy, if he truly was pointing a gun right at them, I believe that's pretty much the protocol. We'll see as more comes out on this. Truly unfortunate that all these things seemed to line up in such a shitty way for him though. I wonder why he didn't ask who it was at the door (assuming he didn't) before just opening and pointing.

If someone beats loudly on your door at 1:30 am and you have an easily accessible gun do you not at least bring it to the door?
