Policeman Shoots Unarmed Marine 13 Times


June 07, 2010
UPI


An off-duty Baltimore police officer shot an unarmed Marine 13 times outside a nightclub, killing him, police said.

City prosecutors will review details of the Saturday shooting to determine whether to file charges against the officer, a 15-year veteran whose name was not disclosed, The Baltimore Sun reported Sunday.

Tyrone Brown, 32, who had served in Iraq twice, died after he was shot at close range, police said.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the officer told investigators he shot Brown after Brown made "advances" toward a woman the officer was with.

"After the advances, the officer and the individual exchanged words," Guglielmi said. "There was an argument, and the altercation turned physical. At that point, the officer pulled out his service weapon and fired multiple shots at our victim."

La-Belle Scott, Brown's sister, told the Sun she was there when the shots were fired at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday. She said Brown had tried to calm the officer down.

Brown "had his hands up to show he didn't have no weapons or anything," Scott said.

"And, the next thing you know, several shots rang out," she said. "It was maybe eight or nine shots that rang out, and then, all I know is my brother is telling me, 'I'm shot.'"

Police were investigating to determine whether alcohol was a factor in the shooting. The officer declined to submit to an alcohol breath exam, the Sun said.

Brown is survived by a wife and two children.

This wasn't the Police. It was one person who so happened to be a police officer being stupid. Your title is misleading

It is a bit misleading - but had the perpetrator never become a police officer, this wouldn't have happened. The two issues aren't completely independent of one another.

It could also have been any random joe carrying a gun when he wasn't supposed to and not a cop.

Note that I'm not saying carrying a gun is a bad thing, but alcohol/night clubs + guns don't mix
