"Good Samaritan" Concealed carrier shot by responding police

Postby M-Quigley » Sun Jul 01, 2018 12:50 pm

Allegedly the gun fell out of a holster during a scuffle and the concealed carrier attempted to either pick it up or keep it from hitting the floor.

Witness accounts differed on how the scene unfolded.

Keyaira Smith, who filmed the encounter, told OPB that Washington was "trying to be a good Samaritan."

“The gun slipped out of the holster when he had fallen, and I think he may have tried to retrieve it,” Smith said, adding that the officers began firing as soon as they saw the weapon.

“There was absolutely no hesitation at all,” she said.


At least all the officers "went home" at the end of there shift. That seems to be the ONLY thing that matters. :(

There's nothing wrong by itself with police officers (or any other law abiding person) wanting to go home at the end of the night. Your quote only shows one side of the alleged story.

Cellphone footage shows a gun slipping away from Washington in the middle of the scuffle. Officers can be heard shouting, “Drop the gun!” several times, before firing their weapons.


But Donald Dietz, 25, an employee at the sports bar, claimed that the officers warned Washington first.

“They warned him multiple times not to reach for it, but he did,” Dietz said. “People think they were overzealous, but they had to do it.”

There is a scuffle, where the carrier victim falls to the ground, perhaps picks it up as he gets up and walks away from the officers. The back of his shirt reads "I am the weapon".
