    Default Man in wheelchair shot to death by Phoenix police

    PHOENIX (Reuters) - A man in a wheelchair was shot to death by two Phoenix police officers on Saturday after he pointed a handgun at them, a police spokesman said.
    The man, who was not identified by authorities, was pronounced dead at the scene of the shooting at a downtown bus and light rail station, Sgt. Steve Martos said.

    Martos said two veteran officers responded to a call of shots fired at the station at about 2:20 p.m. Witnesses said the man had assaulted his girlfriend and he may have shot a gun.

    The officers said they approached the man, who became belligerent and initially wheeled away from them, Martos said.

    The man then swung back and wheeled toward officers, pulling a gun out of his waistband, Martos said, and ignored commands to drop the weapon.
    "The suspect then raised and pointed his handgun at officers," Martos said in a statement. "Fearing for their life, the officers shot the suspect."
    Martos said the officers have been placed on administrative leave, which is standard department policy in officer-involved shootings.

    just because he's in a wheelchair, doesn't mean that he can point a gun at officers. Disabled people commit crimes too.

    The gun might have had something to do with it.

    Maybe it was an electric wheelchair and he was too fast for her.

    Assault doesn't always mean "beat". Just brandishing the gun or threatening her can be considered assault. Reguardless, the asshole shouldn't have pulled a gun on the cops and not expect to get shot just because he's in a wheelchair.

    If you point a gun at a cop you're going to get shot - they're going to take you out. He had to have known they were going to shoot him - maybe he wanted to go out in a "suicide-by cop" scenario.
