Given the totality of circumstances nope. He would be alive had he not fled.

When do police open fire on a vehicle with people inside that have not fired upon them?
That alone is attempted murder.
Again, could have been completely avoidable. Yes, about those people in the truck, who all had an option to get out but decided to stay in the truck.... It's all about your actions folks and they all chose theirs.
Absolutely correct, it was completely avoidable. All the officers had to do was NOT shoot at him when getting out of the truck with his HANDS UP. At that point he was surrendering.
As for those people deciding to stay in the truck, why wouldn't they. They just witnessed Finnicum being shot at with his HANDS UP as he exited the vehicle, then being shot dead.
And again I would have to agree with you, it is all about your actions & the did chose theirs, as did the police, THEY CHOSE TO OPEN FIRE.

You've either intentionally lied to yourself or never actually watched the videos. You're trying to look smart agreeing with people who are smarter than you. It's not working out too well.
Five FBI agents assigned to the traffic stop told investigators that none of them fired at Finicum's Dodge pickup after it crashed at their roadblock. Oregon investigators, however, concluded that one agent fired twice at the truck, hitting it once in the roof and missing on the second shot. A state trooper later described to investigators seeing two rifle casings in the area where the agents were posted. Detectives tasked with collecting evidence didn't find the casings, police reports indicate.
They also announced they had evidence that an FBI agent fired at Finicum's truck but didn't disclose the shots. The agent and four of his colleagues then took "specific actions" afterward, they said, but offered no other details.
Nelson and Norris alerted federal officials to their findings. The FBI agents now are under criminal investigation by the U.S. Justice Department's inspector general.
