To me it sounds like one of two things, either a summary execution of the suspect, or an inexcusable accident. The only way to prevent cops from acting like trigger-happy vigilantes is to make the sanctions for having an "accident" so severe that no one would consider it as an excuse, unless it were the truth, of course.
What's your opinion? Is it plausible that he tried to switch on the flashlight and fired the gun instead? If that is what happened, is he the kind of guy you'd want carrying a gun for work?
