On Sunday, police in upstate New York shot an off-duty Vermont sheriff's deputy who had just finished an exchange of gunfire with a group of guys.Around 3 a.m. on Sunday, the incident occurred after police in Saratoga Springs had reacted to another shooting.
According to the police and the mayor, the deputy was shot many times when he refused to lower his gun.
At a news conference, Saratoga Springs Public Safety Commissioner James Montagnino remarked, "By my count, there are at least eight separate, clear, unequivocal commands to put the gun down and get on the ground," "They are all ignored." Both the deputy and the gang of persons involved in the earlier incident ended up hurting themselves. Apparently, a disagreement led to the shooting. A male was hurt in the fight, and a lady who was presumably the deputy's girlfriend got a graze wound.
The deputy had been reportedly pushed to the ground and smashed against a parked car by three suspects. The deputy then produced a weapon and engaged in gunplay with a member of the gang who also had a handgun.
Responding officers heard gunfire and saw the deputy with his weapon at shoulder height.
Many policemen ordered the deputy to drop his firearm before opening fire. His injuries comprised both entrance and exit wounds, so it's impossible to say how many times he was shot and yet end up with 10 wounds.
He was taken to the hospital, and his status is now being described as stable.
11 times, authorities said, officers fired their firearms.
The probe involves the state police.
