    He's doing fine now.
    It is a miracle that he is alive, the best option would have been to give the man the option to surrender his gun and surrender to the police.

    You missed the "and take down" part?

    This guy deserved to be run over. Not an egregious use of a squad car at all. Ironically the only time cops seem to use guns these days is if they can confirm an individual is unarmed.

    that was more of a "launch" than a take down...

    Pretty shocking to see at first, but if this guy was on a rampage then I can't really fault the cop for "neutralizing" him.

    Pretty clearly a case of "suicide by cop" gone wrong.
    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    It doesn't look like the officer ran him down to save the suspect's life. The way he accelerated clearly looked like the officer had lethal intent. Though unlike most cases we have seen recently, lethal force looked justified. Whether that was the best way of using such force is arguable.

    Does anyone know if this individual was confronted directly and ordered to surrender his weapon?

    He was told to surrender and ignored commands. The game changed a bit when he actually fired the gun. Until then, the cops didn't know if it was loaded.

    He is lucky to be alive.
