    I doubt this will make national news.

    Bystander Fired Deadly Shot, Not Officer

    There were two big developments Monday in the case of a motorist who was shot and killed along Greenwell Springs Road Friday after a fight with a police officer. Investigators say an autopsy shows the deadly bullet was fired by a bystander, not the officer. Police also announced that no charges would be filed in the case, either against the police officer involved or the bystander who fired the fatal shot into the head of George Temple.

    East Baton Rouge Sheriff's spokesman Greg Phares says Officer Brian Harrision was escorting a funeral procession Friday when he pulled Temple over and wrote him a ticket for breaking into the procession. According to Phares, that's when Temple attacked Harrison. Police say Perry Stevens was walking outside of the Auto Zone on Greenwell Springs Road when he heard Harrison yelling for help. Harrison was reportedly on his back with Temple on top of him. That's when Stevens went to his car and grabbed his .45 caliber pistol.

    According to Col. Greg Phares, "[Mr. Stevens] orders Mr. Temple to stop and get off the officer. The verbal commands are ignored and Mr. Stevens fires four shots, all of which struck Mr. Temple."

    Perry Stevens fired four shots into Temple's torso. Officer Harrison had already fired one shot into Temple's abdomen. With Temple still struggling with the officer, Perry continued to advance toward the scuffle.

    "He again orders Mr. Temple to stop what he was doing and get off the officer. Those commands are ignored and he fires a fifth shot and that hits his head. The incident is over with, and as you know, Mr. Temple is dead."

    Police are calling the shooting death justified. Perry Stevens has a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Col. Phares would not give out any more details relating to the shooting. Both Phares and Baton Rouge Police Chief Jeff LeDuff stopped short of crediting Stevens with saving the officer's life. LeDuff says the entire incident is unfortunate.

    "I spoke with his father at the scene briefly," said LeDuff. "I think this is a tragic situation all around."

    9 News is told George Temple has a criminal record, and Officer Harrison was involved in a shooting while employed as a prison guard in East Baton Rouge Parish, where he was suspended for three days back in 1995.

    It's been asserted this may be an old story. The story had no date on it and it was assumed it was from this week. Trying to get verification.

    Regardless, look how many shots it took to put this guy down. A .40 S&W from the cop to the chest, then four .45 ACP to the torso from the CHL holder, plus a final fatal .45 ACP head shot. That's six shots and those weren't peashooters that were used. What does this tell you about limiting magazine capacity?

    All the citizen's shots hit where they were aimed. Now that's what I call GUN CONTROL.

    Also shows there's no such thing as "knock-down power" mutiple large caliber torso hits and the guy kept going. Gotta stop the heart or hit the central nervous system.

    Sorry but this shooting was first reported back in 2006.

    Here is the header and a link to the full article.

    Gunfire kills businessman

    East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene investigator Van Calhoun investigates the scene of a shooting Friday at Greenwell Springs and Joor Road.

    A local businessman was shot dead in a parking lot Friday after a scuffle with a 32-year-old Baton Rouge police officer.

    Investigators are unsure if the shots that killed the victim came from the police officer’s gun, or from a witness who, after hearing the officer yell for help, grabbed his own weapon and fired.

    “At this point, there was enough gunfire in the air that we aren’t sure who delivered the fatal shot to the victim,” said Fred Raiford, East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman.

    An autopsy is scheduled for 10 a.m. today, Raiford said, which should reveal who fired the shot that killed 24-year-old George Temple II.

    There is no indication that Temple, was armed, Raiford said.

    I finally found an article that cites the original date, which is from 2006. Apologies for that.

    However, this article is an in depth analysis for what happened in the gun fight, and the analysis was being used for training purposes. Those of you in law enforcement or who carry concealed might find this interesting. It's too lengthy to post here, click the link.

    Over 300 peace officers lives have been clearly saved by CHL holders in TEXAS since the program was started. Over 300 Citizens have been recognized for saving officers. One was near me.

    When I was in Sauk Village, Illinois, a local cop was getting the crap beat out of him in the parking lot of Tom's Tavern. Two on one just wasn't right, so I jumped in and tried to hold back one of the guys, and I was clearly losing. As the backup arrived the beaten cop had already lost control of his weapon. It kind of dawned on me that I was doing something stupid. Oh to be 22 and idealistic (stupid)again. On the good side, I never got another speeding ticket in that village.

    "If it saves just one life, it's worth it." Where have I heard that before?

    "Bad news travels fast. Good news goes no where"

    Have you ever thought what you'd do if you saw a robbery or worse go down on your way home from the range? Say your loading some groceries in the trunk of your car, and a robber comes running out of the stores front door right toward you, ski mask, gun in his right hand, bag full of money in his left. What do you do? Your shotguns right there in front of you, a 1/2 flat of shells. Do you load up in case he runs your way? Or, jump in the car and skidaddle so you're not involved? I've thought about it a few times over the years, not sure what I'd do? A LEO I shoot with told me there is a law that would protect your involvement in trying to stop the robber, or assit the law.

    Clay shooters are probably the biggest group of armed citizens after LEO's. Maybe deer season in some western stats, or duck season in the south there's more for a few weeks, but for 9 months out of the year, there's a hell of a lot of trap, skeet & sporting shooters wandering around with a gun in the trunk. Think about it, it's a sizable force, especially in the great state of TX, even granny's carrying down there. I think it's important to think about what you'd do now, a lifeboat drill, to make sure you're decisive in your actions if that unfortunate event arises.
