Two brothers called 911 around 2:40 p.m. Monday to report that a suspect shot them with a handgun after they were in a fight in a town house in Herndon.
The brothers escaped and drove themselves to the hospital for treatment, and the suspect took a hostage in the house.
Police responded to the scene and while they attempted to negotiate, the suspect set fire to the town house and continued to shoot a handgun.
The blaze grew to a two-alarm fire and the hostage called police and said he couldn’t breathe.
Repeated attempts to coax the suspect from the house were unsuccessful, and the suspect eventually left the house with a knife in his hand.
After attempts to disarm the suspect with a Taser and rubber bullets, an officer shot the suspect dead.
They tasered him and shot him with rubber bullets, had him surrounded and decided the best way to end was to shoot this apparently insane man to death?
Don’t wait it out. Shoot him to death and once again we don’t get to know the cops name who shot the guy.
Something about this isn’t kosher.
