I heard the story at the police academy, then from a DOC firearms trainer, and finally again from my department's firearms instructor... I'll have to ask about more specifics, though. It is passed around as a "common knowledge" incident that happened a few years back.
Oh, I'm in Colorado, though am not sure if the case stems from here. Seperately, though, never shot at what you cannot see. I do know that a Denver officer shot through the wall at someone shooting at him. Reasonable, right? Well, he killed another officer, not the BG.
Br reasonable and prudent- nobody can gaurantee hits on someone they cannot see.
