LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) - A Lake Havasu City man is dead after being shot by police following a domestic dispute.
Police say officers were called to a home late Sunday night.
They say 20-year-old Devin Christopher Scott allegedly caused a disturbance at a home where his girlfriend, his 2-year-old daughter and his father were inside.
Police say Scott left the residence before officers arrived. He returned before midnight and allegedly broke windows and exterior lights, banged on doors and entered the home before barricading himself in a bedroom.
Scott's father called 911 and officers forced open the bedroom door to take Scott into custody.
Police say Scott was armed with a knife and aggressively approached officers before he was shot.
Scott was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
Kingman police are investigating the shooting.
And of course it was a 'good shoot'
Could someone explain the mindset of an officer in this kind of situation? I have 3 buddy with me..some punk kid comes at me with a pocket knife can i just shoot him?
They took his dad to jail..the kid refused to respond when an officer tried to talk to him...hunt around for the videos
20 year old kid with a pocket knife causes a police officer to be in fear of his life..he don't need to be a officer. The cop had backup..should have had a vest on. Training on how to deal with people who don't want to cooperate, should have spent a fair share of time learning how to evaluate a situation..Add in a healthy dose of adrenaline...The offcer had plenty of time to think things through....back the f down..let things cool down..they already took his dad to jail...and it took LEO 9 hrs before they told him his kid 'didn't make it' All dad wanted was help dealing with the situation..help like that nobody needs or wants...
And on a slightly more humorous note..Chop Shop Randy is back in custody...Stupid "F" was on 7 years probation for...operation of a chop shop...and that is what his latest charges are....guess he did learn some kind of lesson..no boats this time...motorcycles and side by sides...equipment and things..including meth...
Lst time i saw him he flipped be sht about not backing up on this very website..tried to tell me that it was all a big mistake....ya randy..for sure.....
When he was charges last time he was a 2 time felon...figure out how he managed to slide on probation and time served last time.....thing he did like 10 years in prison already...what a fool....he has talent and skills..guess workin for a living was not his way of thinking....guess he had a lot of people stuff he had promise to work on..he had a buddys olds jet boat..all taken apart.../guess he got all the parts back. He had another gals all aluminum blower motor..guess it's still mia...he other boat had a blower motor too..it got stolen while Randy was workin in it..Another buddy found out where it was at..apple valley i think..went and just flat ass took it away from the pos who stole it....
