Wood Carver Shooting Update

This is not breaking news, but I feel obligated to clarify my prior post since more information has come out. The autopsy of John T. Williams, the man fatally shot by an SPD officer recently, revealed that the officer shot Mr. Williams in his side, not in the front of his body. This indicates that Mr. Williams was not directly facing the officer at the time of the shooting, and arguably was posing little threat.

As of yesterday, the Firearms Review Board reached a preliminary finding that the shooting was not justified, the Seattle Times reports.
