Video: Kan. Cops Cleared In Dollar Store Shooting

VIDEO: Kansas Dollar Store Robbery Shooting

The Wichita (Kan.) Police Department has released surveillance video, 911 tapes, and photographs from an October robbery of a Dollar store showing a fatal officer-involved shooting of a man with a knife.

The release of the material comes on the heels of the Sedgwick County District Attorney's Office ruling Friday that officers were justified in using deadly force to subdue 28-year-old DeJuan Colbert, reports the Wichita Eagle.

The incident began the evening of Oct. 30 when the manager of Dollar General recieved a call asking what time the store closed. A few minutes before closing, the manager locked one of the two glass entry doors.

The video shows responding officers entering the store as Colbert charges them with a knife, which came within inched of the first officer. The three officers fired at least 32 shots, striking Colbert with 15 rounds.

Good Job by the officers, things happen so fast and these guys did what they have been trained to do. The suspect had a choice in this case to surrender, but he made a bad choice. I'm glad that none of the officers or employee's got hurt.

Definitley a good shooting on this one. One bad guy down. But 32 shots? Hmmmm adrenaline rush. Good job guys, glad your all safe.

Good job guys, that was very close. Goldwing, officers have to shoot until the threat of the suspect has stopped. A suspect can be hit several times before the right bullet stops him.

Goldwing, the only reason they fired 32 rounds was because 31 was not enough and 33 would have been too many. Good job guys, you made it home.

Only 32 rounds fired? 15 hits in a panic situation? Not too bad guys. Until you've been within two feet of the Reaper you can't judge someone elses' actions. These Officers did a hell of a good job and you'll note that no one was injured but the a**hole that started it. Blues, stay safe & alert!!
