Louisville Metro Police have released video of the confrontation and fatal shooting that took place on Aug 13, 2019 appr. 9:37pm (According to the statement by public integrity unit Lt. Aaron Kroll to the media) between Anthony French Sr. and two Louisville metro police officers. Location of incident was in the 2nd division near the Parkland neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky.
Officers responded to 911 calls and arrived on the active domestic assault scene at the home of Anthony French Sr. & his family. As the officer approached the home of French and walked up his front porch, French came out with a gun pointed in the air and says “I have a gun”.
The officer instructs him to “drop it”, but French decides to point the gun towards the officer & tell him to “back up”. It was a split second after that when several shots rang out. French did not fire his weapon. Two LMPD officers fired multiple rounds at French, who did not survive his injuries.
More details to come as they are released throughout the investigation.
Do you think officers fired enough shots, or more than enough?
Let me know in comments.
This shooting happened in my home town just 10 minutes from my home.
