Upon arrival, the police surrounded the suspect and when he did not drop the gun, shot him with a 12-gauge shotgun. He lost a portion of one arm and was paralyzed from the waist down.
In 2001, he filed a lawsuit against the Officer who shot him and the City of Minneapolis. HE LOST. The court found that the Officer objectively and reasonably believed his Airsoft gun was a deadly weapon.
Yay that the court didn't pussy out.
