    Seattle Police Kill Gunman, Lodge Bullet In Revolver

    The Associated Press

    Police fired a bullet directly into one of the chambers of a gun wielded by an angry man as they shot him to death in a confrontation at a bus stop, authorities said.

    The man never fired his gun, but the fluke police shot showed he was aiming it, said Deputy Police Chief Clark S. Kimerer.

    "Physically, I believe, it is impossible to conclude anything other than the fact that the suspect was pointing a weapon directly at the officers," Kimerer said.

    Police said the 18-year-old man became belligerent after a fight with his girlfriend on Tuesday and raised his gun at officers responding to a call from a concerned storekeeper. Authorities said they ordered the man to put his gun down, but he refused.

    Officers fired a total of about four shots from their .40-caliber Glock handguns, authorities said. One of their bullets entered one of the chambers of the man's .38-caliber revolver, shoving the bullet inside backwards, said Kimerer.

    "I've not seen anything quite like that in my 24 years," Kimerer told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

    The man's name was being withheld because family had not been notified, according to the King County medical examiner's office.

    Both officers were placed on paid leave, a standard procedure in shootings involving law enforcement personnel.

    Like they said, it does prove the guy was pointing his weapon at the officers.


    But damn, for some reason, that tickles me.
