POLICE Magazine's associate editor Dean Scoville interviews Sgt. Dave Lawler of the Linn County (Ore.) Sheriff's Office who is the subject of our October "Shots Fired" article. On Feb. 16, 2008, Sgt. Lawler received a call about a deranged man standing in the street yelling at the passing cars and waving a shotgun. The man then moved to a gas station, where he took a hostage. Sgt. Lawler went to the gas station to stop the man's rampage and rescue the hostage. What resulted was a tense confrontation with multiple shots fired by both the officer and the gunman.
