McMahill said that as Luna was conducting his traffic stop, Officer Brian Kroening and another officer were conducting their own traffic stop within sight of Luna. Kroening noticed Todora’s interaction with Luna and began walking over to check on Luna’s welfare.

Meanwhile, the body camera video showed, Luna asked Todora to get out of the vehicle. Todora refused, replied that he was not going to jail and that he was going to shoot himself. Todora then reached for a pistol that was under a blanket in the passenger’s seat. Luna then reached in to stop Todora, and Todora put the gun to Luna’s head and pulled the trigger. The gun did not fire.

According to McMahill, Luna retreated and called for help as Todora cycled the weapon and fired a shot. The shot shattered the glass of the rear, driver’s-side door, and hit Officer Evan Hogue who had arrived at the scene.

Meanwhile, McMahill said, Kroening approached the vehicle and fired three shots, killing Todora.

McMahill said Luna loaded Hogue into his cruiser and rushed him to University Medical Center for treatment. Hogue was treated for a graze to his neck and released.

McMahill said he is confident the officers handled the situation the best way they could.

The investigation into the shooting continues, McMahill said. Eventually, the findings will be turned over to a civilian-officer review board.

Not to Monday morning quarterback too much, but while I thought the cop was excellent in trying to calm and deescalate the situation, once it turns bad the cop instead of drawing and backing up turns around and runs. Then, he stops running right in the open, still doesn't have his gun drawn, turns and looks at the perp, hears the one cop is shot and runs to him while still not having drawn his gun.

You can do all the live fire drills you want. Nothing adequately prepares you for taking return fire.

WTF was the guy in the car thinking? The officer was actually being fairly reasonable and tried to calm the other man down. Instead the drive shoots at the cops, and now is dead, because he didn't want a ticket for a bad brake light

"well, actually it matters a lot how much you train."

Don't be pedantic; you know what I meant.

"WTF was the guy in the car thinking?"

Frustration & suicide by cop are real things.

This. More common than people think. Especially with criminals who know they might be going away for a long time if caught. Phone Post 3.0

^Looks like life was falling apart for that dude, nothing to do with being a wanted criminal.
