    "Too bad this officer has to live knowing he HAD to kill someone for what probably started as a simple family argument."

    This guy had warrants for kidnapping, assault (on a child!) and property damage. I doubt it was a "simple family argument". He seems to have been a very violent individual.

    Most likely not and Angier man but a bit further south than that. No mention if he is legal or not and why does WRAL insist on calling this a scuffle? Poor writting or just another way of realy making people mad in order to have more to write about.

    could've been the other way around. Too bad this officer has to live knowing he HAD to kill someone for what probably started as a simple family argument. Glad the good prevailed either way.

    About time to read about one that got what he deserved! Pin a gold star on that officer.

    rman -- it don't take much for these low life scums to be out. I have turned in 3 known drug dealers -- who have been verified as dealing to youth in the same area and nothing has been done to date.

    I wonder what his past tense legal status was?

    Good job. Good guys 1, bad guys 0.

  • rman Dec 3, 5:10 p.m.

    With all these outstanding warrants why was he out free walking the streets in the first place? What panty-waist judge would let him walk? Here-in lies most of the domestic violence tragedies.

    People just don't respect the law anymore. Go into a fight with your fists or a knife against a gun or a taser is just not too smart. Domestic call with prior felony domestic warrants is not a safe situation for the LEO.

    Sorry for the outcome, but at least it was the bad guy that paid the price.

    Methinks when you have a felony suspect with all those serious charges and his actions result in an officer having to shoot him then I think we have gone WAY past a "scuffle".

    When an officer's life is in danger, they have to protect themselves any way they can. They are doing their job which is to serve and protect law abiding citizens.

  • johnny2times Dec 3, 3:25 p.m.

    glad the officer is ok.

    Is sad story.
