Summary
Police received a call at 11:30 a.m. from a woman at a home who feared a man in the home with a history of recent mental health issues might try to kill himself, police said. A veteran officer and a trainee responded. As soon as the door opened, they saw a pool of blood on the floor and a man with a knife with a 12-inch blade coming at them. The veteran fired his Taser, but one of the darts hit West’s belt and did not stop him. West kept advancing and the trainee officer shot and killed him.
