This report proves that the officers need to be sent back to the range for firearms training so that their accuracy could be improved. Especially the one having the shotgun should be given shells with 9mm slugs inside, as opposed to whatever else may have been used.

Gee Leonard, thanks for your expert opinion. When was the last time you tried to shoot a man running and high on PCP. I think you watch too much TV. Sounds to me like the officers did an outstanding job and I appreciate the work they do. Thank God none of them were hurt or killed.

The "alleged "theft of a police cruiser, really?

Think the firearms training program needs to be revamped. Hit by rounds from a least one shotgun and multiple rounds from handguns and this guy is still alive???? Front sight center mass and press the trigger!!!

Love all the expert firearms training officers we have that love to talk about training. Sorry, but unless you have ever been in an OIS and been in those conditions, then dont lecture about how you would have done it. Sheshh.

I too love to hear all talk about judging officers on lack of training when I bet you've never had to shoot anyone, or have been shot. Get your ass shot, have to shoot a suspect, then come back and talk s*$

Great job everybody, you faced a frightening foe and stood up to him. It is becoming all too common that suspects on drugs can take multiple rounds and shrug them off. Thank God the good guys are alright.

Hey Leonard...9mm slugs in a shotgun? How the heck does that work? Talk to us when you know what you're talking about.

Work next to PG County and know in their shootings they hit what they aim at over there. But take a fool on PCP and shoot him, it may not always work like you would think. Blame the POS and the drug, not the police.

The PCP was probably bought with tax dollars now the best medical care will be paid for with tax dollars. Something wrong with our system here???
