There was obviously an issue at play here. Can you guess what it is?

APD investigating shooting at 401 SE 2nd. UPDATE 





On 2-14-18 at 8:54 am, APD Officers were sent to the Faith City Mission located at 401 SE 2nd Ave. The initial call indicated that an armed suspect was holding approximately 100 people hostage in the chapel. Investigators believe that responding officers entered at two different entrances to the building. Officers came into contact with a man that had a gun in his hand. One or more officers fired shots at the man. The man was hit and taken to the hospital by ambulance. Location of the wounds is not currently available.
 
 The initial investigation indicates that the man the officer shot had originally been in a struggle with the original suspect and had taken away the gun from the suspect. The initial suspect has been taken into custody and is not injured. No other persons were hit by gunfire. This is very early in the investigation and more details will be available at a later time.

And the reason this was not plastered all over the news, is because a citizen took action and stopped it! No mass shooting to keep people in fear, goes against their agenda

I don't fault the police for acting as they did based on the information they had.

Securing the weapon used by the bad guy in a good guy's hand did not make for a good day, in this case.
