The Man Turned Violent Out Of Nowhere
The manager of the restaurant asked him to leave, to which the man refused. The restaurant was flocked in with many visitors who had come in here to grab a meal. They would have never thought that they would have to witness a scene of this intensity. Derek Williams, one of the onlookers, said, “The man jumped up and then jumped back, grabbed a chair. This is when the commotion started. He grabbed the chair and threw it at the police.”
Williams even describes the appearance of the man. He said that he was also knocked down by him. “The man kept coming as if he had not been hit,” Williams added.
Officers Reluctant To Fire
Upon further questioning, Williams disclosed that the police were reluctant to shoot the man. He tried very hard to solve the issue by making a conversation and by asking the suspect to surrender himself. But the man was in no mood of quitting.
“The officer kept saying, do not make me do this, do not make me do this, over and over again,” said Williams.
Then, in the end, the officer ended up shooting him in his chest.
