Thumbs down Put your gun away as PoPo arrive...

A Vietnam war veteran defending his home from an intruder was shot and killed by police who mistook the man for the assailant, Colorado authorities said Tuesday.
Police responded early Monday to a call made by a woman who said a man had broken into her home, according to the Aurora Police Department.
When an officer arrived, he heard a gunshot fired inside the residence. Once he entered the home, the officer found "a very chaotic and violent scene," according to the statement.
While inside, the officer saw the armed resident, who the officer then fatally shot. The officer then cleared the house in order to secure the scene.
The man shot by the officer, identified by a family member to NBC affiliate KUSA as 73-year-old Richard Black, was transported to a hospital where he died.
Sad situation indeed.

That's a shame. Anytime you are involved in a weapon drawn/fired situation, the first thing you do is re-holster or lay down the gun and step away. That way there is no doubt about your intentions.
