Officer and Suspect Draw On Each Other In Close Firefight

Description


Sergeant Gabriel Green and officer Kaylynn Griffin apprehended a suspect in a Palestine, TX Applebees on May 31st.

As the officers escorted the suspect out of the restaurant, he pulls a handgun from his pocket and and aims at officers.

After engaging and killing the suspect, it was found that he only had a BB gun, which looked exactly like a 9mm pistol. This may have been a case of suicide by cop, or he could have been hoping it would give him a chance to create some space so that he could run.
