According to Col. Greg Phares, "[Mr. Stevens] orders Mr. Temple to stop and get off the officer. The verbal commands are ignored and Mr. Stevens fires four shots, all of which struck Mr. Temple."
Perry Stevens fired four shots into Temple's torso. Officer Harrison had already fired one shot into Temple's abdomen. With Temple still struggling with the officer, Perry continued to advance toward the scuffle.
"He again orders Mr. Temple to stop what he was doing and get off the officer. Those commands are ignored and he fires a fifth shot and that hits his head. The incident is over with, and as you know, Mr. Temple is dead."
To make something simple is a thousand times more difficult than to make something complex.
So, anyone want to talk about the effectiveness of 4 .45 caliber shots to the torso? :troll:
Makes sense in this scenario. He was stationary. You are used to shooting stationary paper at the range, anyways. :roll:
And thank God for Perry Stevens. LEOs are not invincible and can use help sometimes, too.
Sounds like it was from inside 15 feet. Shoulda been "one and done."
I put in lots of time to do something about that when I had the chance....
Not to hijack, but...
We've been trying to revamp our firearms training program a lot. Our problem is resistance from command staff that likes change like a hole in the head. Good on you for trying to help out the situation!
He would have.........but Mr. Perry reloaded. :tooth:
I will fear no evil: For I carry a .308 and not a .270
