The cop would have been shocked by the response of this big angry person and when the kid refused to comply he defended himself-the cop's saying the person reached into the car, trying to get the gun and at one point GOT it, there was an accidental discharge (from the struggle). Then the dearly departed backs off, starts verbally taunting the cop, and when the cop defends himself shooting him a mere 3 feet away (and in the front, NOT the back as if this thug running off. The cop has apparently stated that he also appeared to be on drugs- Id say possibly the type he may have been stealing swisher sweets to make blunts with.
