Officer Involved Shooting Investigated

MODESTO – Authorities investigated an officer involved shooting that took place behind the Motel 6 on West Orangeburg Avenue.

At about 9:45pm, an officer called out “shots fired” over their radio channel. The dispatch prompted a large response from numerous officers. An ambulance was also requested to the scene. Paramedics were seen unloading equipment, but left a few short moments after without a patient.

    How many more people have to die at the hands of officers before there's a change in the way things are handled. These officers nowadays don't even use the procedures they are taught through their basic training to disarm people. They just go for the kill shot these days I guess because they don't have to answer to nobody about it. There are so many unnecessary deaths these days at the hands of officers who react with deadly force when it's not necessary. This really needs to stop, these officers need to be held responsible for killing people who are not armed and who did not pose a threat to them. They could shoot somebody just to injure them in order to gain control of things but they don't do that. They shoot to kill and that's murder no matter who's doing it. Just my opinion........ In the end everybody has to answer to God and if it's not justifiable you won't be earning your wings.
