That's Captain Comperchio's official take on it, but I'd like to think the shooting officer purposely aimed to the right of center. What supports my theory is that only one shot was fired. In other cases where several cops empty their guns on a guy because he "lunged" at them, I have my suspicions. But in this case, I like the way it happened.
At a press conference Monday, [Capt. Joseph] Comperchio said the officer followed standard training to aim for a suspect’s chest when threatened with a weapon.
“From every indication, this was a justified shooting, and he did everything he was supposed to do,” Comperchio said. “(The teen) was threatening a police officer with this large kitchen knife.”
