Deon Williams was pulled over for driving a car with expired plates that the officers thought had been stolen. After being pulled over Williams tried to walk away, but the officer thought he saw a weapon in his waistband and asked Williams to come over to the police car. At this point Williams started running and the police officers gave chase. When one officer cornered him, he said he saw a gun fall from Williams's waistband, and when Williams picked it up and looked towards the officer the officer fired 3 shots (though some in the area report hearing 5-8.) The car was not stolen but belonged to his girlfriend, Williams was on parole for previous drug-related charges and narcotics were found "on the scene". The two officers involved were placed on administrative leave, and after the shooting there was a 200 person demonstration.

An off-duty Little Rock officer working as a mall security guard responded to complains by a woman that a car with 3 persons in it was "harassing" her 17-yr-old daughter by telling her to get in their car. (Cops later concluded this was "NOT a kidnapping attempt" (!)

Three mall security guards approached the car, which began to "back away fast" so one of the guards, off-duty Little Rock Officer Christopher Johannes, opened fire. He fired "several shots" toward the driver's side of the vehicle, shooting driver Joseph Williams, 29, in the torso, and front seat passenger, Keithen Pettus, 30, in the face. Williams sped the car to the parking garage exit, when he lost control and hit the mall's elevator shaft. Both men tried to flee on foot. A third passenger, Johnnie Campbell, was visibly injured but refused treatment. Far as I can tell no charges were filed against the officer involved.

There was one robbery suspect with three other people in a vehicle, 3 men and one woman total. The vehicle reversed, knocking down one officer and then came towards the others. There were seven police officers total who fired their weapons 53 times.

He was extremely intoxicated and holding two pool cues. Officers released a K-9 dog which bit him, but according to reports, did not slow him down. As conditions were "too windy" for spray or tazer, the officer shot and killed the victim.

This caused some controversy as the victim was a veteran of the Marines. Cindy McCain (wife of Sen. John McCain) came under fire from the police station for praising the victim's service posthumously over Twitter.

It all started at about 3 a.m. When officers arrived on the scene in the area of Indian School Road and 91st Avenue in West Phoenix, they encountered several heavily armed suspects walking out of a home.
According to Sgt. Trent Crump of the Phoenix Police Department, the man who was leading the group was armed with a rifle.
“When that rifle was leveled at our officer and a shot came from that group of individuals who came out, our officers returned fire,” Crump said.
While no officers were injured in the gun battle, one of the suspects, a 21-year-old male, was killed. A second suspect, Michael Trevino, 29, was shot several times. He was taken to a local hospital where he reportedly is in stable condition.

As the armed men attempted to leave the house in the victim's car, the cops showed up. Officers demanded that the men drop their weapons, which they didn't, and a brief shootout took place in front of the house, leaving two suspects wounded on the ground. The others fled on foot into the neighborhood.As officers approached one of the men, the wounded suspect reached for his gun. He was promplty shot a second time -- this time fatally -- by the officer.The other wounded man, Trevino, suffered gunshot wounds and dog bites and was taken to an area hospital.

Suspects in burglary were chased by officers into a canal. There, Smith reportedly threatened an officer with an 8-inch folding knife and refused orders to drop the knife. He also reportedly said, "Go ahead and shoot me." As Smith and the officer came closer together, the officer felt threatened and fired 3-4 shots when the two were within 20 feet of each other. Smith was then shot one more time, fatally. The shooting was very controversial in Guadalupe and Maricopa County -- the deputy's use of force was upheld as "justified" one year later.

On June 4, 2012, at approximately 8:50 a.m., Lompoc Police Officers responded to 208 South I Street, in Lompoc on a "shots fired" call. The investigation revealed the occurrence of the following events. Lawrence Kitchen became involved in a dispute with a neighbor's visitor over parking in the multi-unit residential property. Kitchen armed himself with a shotgun and handgun. He confronted Michelle Velasquez and shot her with the shotgun, injuring her and killing a small dog she was holding. Kitchen then pointed his weapon at Eusebio Ruiz who was attempting to seek refuge in apartment #1. Kitchen shot Ruiz in the torso and leg. When confronted by officers and instructed to drop the weapon and get down, he pointed his weapon at Lompoc Police Officers Dan Sessions and Willie Francis. Both officers fired at Kitchen. They hit Kitchen twice. Kitchen died at the scene. The District Attorney's role in reviewing this homicide is to determine whether the shooting of Lawrence Alan Kitchen was lawful and to provide a detailed explanation to the public about the facts and the law in that regard. As stated in Graham v. Connor (1989) 490 U.S. 386, this process "requires careful attention to the facts and circumstances." Hence, this analysis will give careful attention to both the facts and the circumstances of the fatal shooting of Lawrence Alan Kitchen.

The incident occurred just after 3:45 p.m. near the intersection of East Harbor Boulevard and Figueroa Boulevard (map), where an officer was struck by a GMC Sonoma pickup truck, a spokesman for the Ventura Police Department said.

The driver of the truck was stopped by traffic officers, and as they were talking to him, he allegedly put the vehicle in reverse gear and smashed into a truck behind him, Wilson said.

“He put the truck back in drive, drove forward, striking one of our officers,” Wilson said. “That officer landed up on the hood of the [Sonoma] and into the windshield.”

The driver was hit when several officers opened fire

Full disclosure: I am an attorney for the victim. The information below is from the police reports and witness statements. I'd be happy to email the police reports, investigations and witness statements if Deadspin would like to review the evidence itself.

Police were called because a neighbor believed 4 teenagers were smoking pot in an apartment complex's laundry room. The sheriff's office responded to the call because it was in the unincorporated part of Vista, California. A 25 year old female, alone, approached the four people. There was no signs of pot. Nevertheless, Deputy Storms decided to do a warrant check. She handcuffed one of the individuals and sat him down on the curb outside the laundry room. She went to handcuff the victim, who asked why he was being arrested. She told him to shut up or she would tase him. He then looked over his shoulder at her and she told him to turn around or she was going to tase him. She then bear hugged him. The victim (5'7" 190lbs (arrest records indicate 5'8" 220lbs, of course)), then tried to get away believing he was about to be tased. He pushed the officer out of the laundry room. She still had him in the bear hug position as if she was about to suplex him. The two fell to the ground, Deputy Storms falling on her back. Witnesses state that the victim never once tried to strike Deputy Storms and was struggling to try to get away. Deputy Storms discharged her taser during the fracas on the ground and the probes missed the victim but nearly hit the bystanders. The victim got to his feet and began to run. While he was at least 30 feet away, Deputy Storms shot him in the back. The bullet entered about 4" to the right of the spine, severed the victim's lung, liver and spleen and ultimately came to rest immediately behind his right nipple. The victim spent weeks in the hospital recovering.

The following day, Deputy Storms said that she looked up from the sidewalk and saw the victim with her taser and believed he was about to shoot her. The taser was on the ground about 40 feet from the victim at the time he was shot IN THE BACK, something that the journalists and officers doing the investigation fail to address in their coverage.
