Eventually, a third officer from the Southport police department entered the home as well, and ordered the use of tasers to subdue Vidal. According to Wilsey, Vidal was pinned on the ground by two of the officers when a third said, “we don’t have time for this,” and shot Vidal, killing him.

The State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the shooting of a teenager by a police officer in Boiling Springs Lakes over the weekend.
Mark Wilsey Sr. says that initially officers were able to calm his son, who suffers from schizophrenia. But Wilsey says when a third officer arrived, his son became agitated. Wilsey says officers used a stun gun on Vidal and then a shot was fired and Vidal was hit.
Authorities say officers from three agencies responded. They have not released additional details.
Local paper so it is true to some extent.

Tell everyone you know and love. Never call police. Never talk to police even if you are innocent.
State sponsored terrorism. Good cops don't exist. Just like good prison guards at Abu Ghraib don't exist.
Just two sides; part of the problem and those in various stages of solution engineering.
audio and video on all cops and cruisers now! Deduct legal judgements from the pensions of these scum. These evil actors are draining tax revenue away from important stuff.
So the question has to become this...why did the parents call the cops in the first place?

It says the family just recently lost a daughter to a car wreck. I can't fathom what they are going through right now.

According to the report, the first unit on scene was a Boiling Spring Lakes officer who arrived at 12:34. He was joined shortly after by two additional BSL officers and a Brunswick County Sheriff's Deputy.
The first unit on scene reported a confrontation in the hallway, but told Brunswick County Dispatchers several times that everything was OK. Unit 104 from Southport arrived on the scene at 12:48:41, fourteen minutes after the first officer had already been on scene. Seventy seconds later, Unit 104 radioed out that he had to fire shots at the subject in order to defend himself.
First thing that popped into my head was that the cop grabbed his gun instead of his tazer. It makes sense with his allegedly saying 'we don't have time for this' which I would think to mean wrestling with the kid. Stranger things have happened.
