Texas Officers Kill Man Who Attacked Them in Bizarre Rampage

February 01, 2016  | 

A man who attacked two police officers and several homeowners in a residential neighborhood Saturday night was reportedly running up and down the street “making growling sounds” before he was fatally shot by police, Saginaw, TX, police spokesman Sgt. Damon Ing said Sunday.

The man, identified as Michael Brown, 25, died of a gunshot wound to the chest, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s website Sunday.

Ing told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram the officers have Tasers, but he is not sure whether they had time to use them.

Both officers were taken to a hospital for treatment, and released by Sunday, Ing said. He is not sure when they will be back to work. One officer is on administrative leave, normal procedure as police investigate the shooting.

What?!? They shot this crazed man and killed him? The report does not show that he was armed with a gun, knife, tank, or otherwise. By God, the police should have sat him down at a picnic cloth in the middle of a field of flowers near the scene and hashed out what the real problem was. They should have maybe gave him a hug and told him that he wasn't at fault for all of this commotion and then apologize for interrupting him. You know, deescalate the situation before they were a bunch of big meanies and shot him. One thing I do thank them for though is at least they didn't use Tasers to bring him undercontrol. Those things kill people. Yours truly, Clueless Citizen who thinks he know how to do the job better than those that do it.
