The other officer thought that Felio was trying to take the officer’s gun, so he shot and killed Felio, Vaughn said.
He "thought" the man was trying to take the officer's gun? For a fatal shooting I would expect a little better explanation than "I thought." Perhaps a taser would have been a better option?

I'd agree that the explanation reads weakly.

But if someone actually does go for the officer's service weapon, I would not expect to see the response limited to only less lethal options.

Fighting with ANY cop will end up bad for those involved.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes...

I would agree that on the surface it does seem that there could have been more options (less lethal) available, but this is a *NEWS* report which really equates to "tell what sells".
