Um, and his eyes were just complete 100% defiance. He had this, this look on his face like, you know, like I, ah, hate? Um, like he was, he was not going to do anything that I said. Um, and it was just a horrible feeling, um, looking at him. Having him, you know, just the, it was horrible. Just hate, defiance, that he had in his eyes.
I was 100 percent, 100 percent convinced when I saw him turn around it was gonna be a gunfight. I knew he had that gun, that he’d be trying to kill us,” said Officer Cruz.
Plaintiffs Cody Taylor, Jerrail Taylor, and Teesha Taylor, as individuals and on behalf of the Estate of Decedent, Dillon Taylor, along with Adam Thayne, individually, allege as follows:
On August 11, 2014, brothers Dillon and Jerrail Taylor, and their cousin Adam Thayne, were walking together in Salt Lake City on their way to the 7-eleven. All three boys were peaceful, non-threatening, and unarmed at all times. 2.
A person who refused to identify herself called 911 making a confused, incoherent, and convoluted report about some kids the caller viewed as maybe suspicious. The caller told the 911 operator that she did not feel threatened and that no one was in danger. The caller later admitted to drinking Vodka earlier that evening. 3.
That call led Salt Lake City police officers Bron Cruz, Uppsen Downes, and Andrew Sylelloglou to be dispatched to the 7-Eleven located at 2102 South State Street in South Salt Lake City, Utah. 4.
After pulling into the 7-Eleven, Cruz immediately went
following Dillon who was minding his own business. Cruz demanded Dillon show his hands. As Dillon attempted to comply, Defendant Cruz fired two rapid-succession shots
one slicing through
heart and the other piercing his hand and abdomen.

Nah, this has already been posted. The kid absolutely saw the cops pull up, ducked out the opposite direction, pretended briefly to be unaware of them, then when facing the officer with gun drawn on him, further sealed his own fate by not stopping and getting his hands up as ordered. These actions will very reliably get you shot and everybody knows it.
