i simply couldn't resist, now, i don't know what caliber a 'patrol rifle' is, but it's likely a .223/.556 or a .308.....and seein how this was a
highly trained professional law enforcement tactical/swat team officer at the trigger, and assuming there was some type of high tech eotech or red dot
scope on said patrol rifle, it would be quite amazing that a one shot one kill scenario did NOT occur here.
heck, countless hunters from 12 years old and up kill deer with one shot on a regular basis from likely greater distances
in fact, i understand to
use 2 or more shots causes one to enter in to the 'inhumane' category.
anyway, i digress. i did find an article indicating Page was in possession of a Springfield 9mm.
check this 'official' report:
