DV, possible mental illness. "Officer Hansford was confronted with an armed and aggressive individual in extremely close quarters… The officers stated they were there because his girlfriend said she was punched in the face. Mr. Andrews immediately asked, “Am I fucking going to jail for this?” … Officer Walsh briefly entered the apartment and said that he knew Mr. Andrews. He asked Mr. Andrews if he was on his medication, to which Mr. Andrews replied, “no, I’m not on my fucking medication.” Cops move to handcuff him in kitchen: "Suddenly, Mr. Andrews turned quickly to his right, reached with his right hand to the counter area, and grabbed two knives and a carving fork. These implements ranged from about 8.75 inches to about 11.5 inches in total length." The officers stepped back and ordered Mr. Andrews to drop the knives and carving fork, repeating the command several times. Mr. Andrews screamed loudly, “I’m not going to jail,” “you’ll have to fucking kill me,” “I’m not going to jail,” and “I’m not leaving this kitchen.” He was flailing his arms with the knives out in front of him, slashing in the officers’ direction at a distance of about five feet and yelling, “fucking shoot me.” The officers continued to command Mr. Andrews, “Boston Police drop the knife.” Officers Hansford and Travers had backed up in the hallway against the wall and could not create any more distance between themselves and Mr. Andrews. Mr. Andrews then let out a loud, guttural scream, raised his arms with the knives, and lunged forward at the officers. Fearing for his safety, and that of the other officers as well as the people in the apartment, Officer Hansford fired his gun twice, striking Mr. Andrews in the chest and abdomen. Officer Hansford was the only officer who fired his weapon."
