I want to thank Gabe for a very informative article. The problem with this shooting is that the officer fired 8 times. After the first shot, he was no longer threatened by what he perceived to be a gunman. The other seven bullets were meant to kill! The suspect was shot in the back...how much of a threat was that? I am so sorry that Andy Lopez is dead. He made a very foolish mistake, one that I hope other kids won't make: DON'T MAKE A TOY WEAPON LOOK REAL.
