The deputy was initially called to the neighborhood to investigate a report of someone entering a house and attacking a homeowner. When the deputy arrived at the house, she saw the suspect standing in the roadway, where he assumed a "fighting stance," according to the news release. "The officer ordered the suspect to stop several times, however, he aggressively continued toward her," the news release stated. "The officer used her baton in an attempt to protect herself from the attacking suspect. A struggle for the officer's baton took place and an officer-involved shooting occurred."
A deputy was hunched over the man, performing CPR. Soon an ambulance arrived, and medics took over. "Stay with us, Omar!" they shouted, over and over, Rosado said.

If what you say is accurate then I'm happy this officer tried her baton, a mostly non lethal tool for defense, before drawing the firearm. Seriously, tase or pepper spray unarmed people first. Even non lethal rounds from a firearm will make just about anybody that isn't on PCP stop whatever it was they were doing.

I too would like to see more pepper spray and stun weapons in use but then, I wasn't there.
