The New Year started with another incident which the Seattle city has been infamous for, Police involved shooting. On Monday, a man of 30 years of age died after being shot near Aurora Ave N and N 96th St by a police officer.
As per the version of Police, the whole incident started after a man was pulled over in his car and not complying with Police orders, he started to run.
The driver ran across the lanes and streets when one officer caught him and grabbed him.
Suddenly, more officers were rushing to that place as per the witnesses. As per investigators, the driver pulled out a handgun when a police officer shot at him. The driver died on the spot.
With an increase in officer-involved shooting cases, the last year was quite controversial for the Police department. There is a fine line between law enforcement and Police excess. The department should strictly follow the line restraining itself from shooting unless it’s for self-defense.
