Mapping Police Violence:

The off-duty officer lives in the area and saw a man on the porch of a vacant apartment about 11:30 p.m. The officer called 911 twice during the incident, according to a union spokesman. He called out to the man to see what he was doing and the man replied "You don't want no part of me." The man had a bag or sack over his shoulder and his hand on his waistband, Camden said, but repeatedly ignored the officer's commands to come down after he identified himself as an officer. The man turned down a gangway and started to walk away, but the officer told him there was no way out of that gangway. The man, in a dark gangway, grabbed his waistband and threatened to kill the officer while continuing to ignore the officer's demands to show his hands. The officer opened fire after the man grabbed his waistband. He died at the scene, and the officer was not injured.
