Doesn't surprise me. Unfortunately.
They always want to blame civilians for responding incorrectly, but this takes the cake. I hope the victim recovers and gets compensated for the hell he was just put through.

Look at both sides folks...

Homeowner sees someone outside but unsure of possible target...raises gun

Deputy gets medic alarm, no response, than movement but no reply...could be a BG who subdued homeowner...sees gun

Bad moves on both sides...

Better scenario:

Ring bell "Sheriff's Office we have a medical alert"

Ring again, repeat hail.

Ring again do perimeter check looking for forced entry.

Homeowner: Stop, think, act. That means listen than look and move. Don't grab gun and run to door. Think before you do something, have a well defined set of plans before the event happens. Check for possible entries before leaving the know safe area.

Yeah I'm not saying I'm paranoid but I won't be standing in a lit window.

Arlington cop shot and killed a woman he was supposed to do a welfare check on this week.

Is there any reason why turning on the lights on the top of the police car when responding to a house call is a bad idea?

If someone is going to break into my house, I have doubts that they would go through the trouble of fitting their vehicle with flashing blue lights.

I only ask because it would seem to take away some confusion as to who may be at the door.

Looks to me like the officer failed to identify himself as a LEO prior to squeezing the trigger -- as it's clear NEITHER occupant of the home had any idea there was a LEO at the home.

I'd call that criminally negligent...

Depends upon the situation but often on a wellness check lights aren't required or used because of the disturbance to the rest of the neighborhood.

Yes I know...but those are the facts of life...might be different depending upon the situation or the department involved.

Most people on a gun forum page will blame the cop. But look at this way.....had the man not tried to defend himself from a non-threatening situation, he would be alive.

This will be interesting when it gets to the courts. Both of these guys will be correct and yet also wrong. But if you look at intentions, all the cop did was show up at a house due to an alarm and a man pointed a gun at him.

I'm sorry, did we establish, for sure, that the resident aimed at the cop? Or is that now being retracted by the police? If not, the payout should be significant.
