Man was killed by sheriff’s deputies was brandishing a gun at officers


LYNWOOD, Calif. — A man who was killed by sheriff’s deputies in a hail of 30 bullets in front of a gas station here was brandishing a gun at officers and passers-by, and he apparently fired it into the air at least six times during the encounter, the police said Sunday.

The man, identified as Nicholas Robertson, 28, of Lynwood, was seen carrying a gun during the entire encounter on Saturday, the police said, displaying photographs and videos in which the gun was clearly visible in the suspect’s hand. They said he had been acting erratically and had ignored the instructions of deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to drop his weapon, which officials described as a .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun.

Why would any person, male or female, black, white, polka-dot, red, or purple disobey the police to drop the weapon ?
