It follows the same formula:
‘New witness footage has surfaced of the fatal June 25 shooting of Dylan Noble, the unarmed 19-year-old who was pulled over by two Fresno police officers. In the video, obtained by the Fresno Bee, Noble can be seen lying face-up on the ground by his pickup truck with his arm in the air saying, “I’ve been shot” before an officer fires another bullet.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the Fresno PD came to the scene that afternoon in response to a call about a man in camouflage walking around with a rifle. They arrived to find Noble speeding off nearby in his pickup truck, who refused to stop driving for about half a mile before Noble pulled into a nearby Chevron gas station.
Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer told the Bee that Noble did not respond to multiple requests from officers to show his hands before stepping out of his vehicle. According to Lt. Burke Farrah, the officers then ordered him to the ground and to show them his hands. Instead, Noble placed one hand behind his back and then into his waistband before walking “toward officers very rapidly,” at which point they opened fire.
In the aftermath of the shooting, Farrah explained, it was determined that Noble was not armed and no weapons were found in his truck. Police have not announced a connection between Noble and the man described in the 911 call.’
Failure to comply and reaching into waistband/behind back leads to police shooting more often than not. Click here to find out why you didn’t hear about this one.
