    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.

    An attempted disarming should be answered w/ lethal force.

    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".
