    Police Kill Man In Taser Incident
    Home Burglary Suspect Puts Up Fight

    POSTED: 7:53 am MST June 7, 2008

    PHOENIX -- Officers trying to arrest a home burglary suspect fatally shot him after he grabbed an officer's Taser and began shocking them, police said.

    A homeowner who said someone was in his yard and rifling through items in his carport and shed called officers to the central Phoenix home near 7th Avenue and Thomas Road just after 3 a.m., Detective Stacie Derge said.

    Police said they confronted the man, who was carrying two metal flowers stands that were about 3-feet long. Derge said the unidentified man refused to drop them or obey commands, and an officer shocked him with a Taser.

    The man pulled the Taser probes from his body and began fighting with two officers in the front yard, Derge said.

    One of the officers fired his Taser but the man continued fighting and was able to grab the weapon from the officer, Derge said.

    The man then fired the Taser at other officers, investigators said. A third officer arrived who saw the man still had the Taser and was fighting with the other two officers.

    The third officer shot and killed the man, Derge said.

    The officers were not seriously injured but received minor scrapes in the fight.

    The homeowner stayed in the house and was not injured.

    I'd like see video of the incident sounds rather comical.

    Here it would depend, is the perp white? Then it briefly makes the evening news, black? well reverand Al will be marching demanding justice against the corrupt and racist NYPD even though the cop who shot him was also black, charges may follow.

    how did the perp fire a taser that had already been fired on himself? Aren't the cartridges one-time-use.

    so they have a sandwich in one hand, and a knife in the other? I'd shoot them, then steal the sandwich.
