Off-Duty Memphis Officer Fatally Shoots Man at Gas Station

April 11, 2016  | 

An off-duty Memphis police officer killed his fiancee's ex-husband during a child custody exchange at a gas station, authorities said Monday, reports the Associated Press.

The off-duty officer was at the gas station to witness his fiancee picking up her 4-year-old daughter from her ex-husband Sunday night, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokesman Josh DeVine said.

The ex-husband, Luis Philipe Soto, and the officer got into an altercation. The situation escalated, and the officer shot Soto, 29, DeVine said. Investigators found what they believe to be Soto's gun near his body, but they were still working to determine if he fired it during the struggle, DeVine said.

The officer's name was not released.

Wow, this will be a mess, there is probably more to this then meets the eye. Frankly I understand why the Off-Duy officer would be there if he felt she needed the protection but perhaps get a third party officer (on or off duty) to be there thus saving any real conflict of interest claims. Im sure this will not turn out well for the Officer, even if they can't "prove" he did anything his "judgement" will come into question. You all know what that means these days, you out because the bosses wont take the heat at all, doesnt matter if you are right or wrong, you just "were there".
