    Hit at least once? I wonder how many shots were fired? I’m no expert bit I would hope the ones who missed at this distance would go to the range more. Just saying…

      I thought LEO did very well quickly stopping the assailent in this case, don’t know all the background issues but he rounded a corner, engaged the target in close proximity to the victim and ended the threat.
