When police arrived minutes later, witnesses said, Becker dropped his handgun, raised his hands — and then an officer with a rifle shot him in the hip.
The gunman Becker confronted was
initially concealed from police behind a cooler, said Raymond Watts, 28.
The Kansas City man said he was in a vehicle with his two children on
23rd Street near the store.
“I was figuring, ‘How the hell do
they shoot him?’ He never pointed a gun at the cops,” Watts said. “He
complied with everything they said ... and then you heard a pop.”
I'm getting pretty tired of reading crap like this.
