Amazed at his restraint. He didn't shoot until he absolutely had to.
Costco sells coffins. That's handy for the knife fella.
Did he wait until he was shooting towards the door with customers inside?
Suicide by cop
Thank God the guy with the knife was white.
I prefer the Mozambique technique.
He waited way too long. Never should have let him get that close.
Gene Simmons raced to the hospital to make a pitch
Big guy with a looong knife... should have capped his psycho ass 15 seconds earlier....and fired 2-3 shots.
Probably never used his gun before and was unsure.
Absolutely. He looked like he got within 4 or 5 feet a few times. Not me pal. Guns work great from further away.
The officer was backing up and could have hit a column or tripped.
STAND YOUR GROUND!
This was in Northern California....Don't blame Florida for this nut!
Knife-wielding man shot at Costco wanted to commit suicide, sister says
The knife-wielding man who was shot by an off-duty correctional officer at Costco on Thursday had been released from Doctors Behavioral Health Center two hours before the shooting, his sister said.
Gary Harlan Scott, 61, was suicidal and had spent most of July in the hospital, said sister Suzanne Perez.
Perez went to pick up her brother when he was discharged from DBHC about 3 p.m. Thursday, but he refused to go with her. She said Scott told her he wanted to kill himself, so she called police, but he got on a bus and left the area before they arrived.
Two hours later, Perez got a call from police, who said her brother had been shot.
Scott had entered the Costco on Pelandale Avenue and armed himself with a knife that was being sold in the store, according to Modesto police.
Costco employee Seth Watson said Scott was wandering around the clothing area with the knife, then proceeded to the cash registers, where he “jabbed it” toward employees.
Scott continued outside, where the correctional officer, an employee of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, drew a firearm and ordered him multiple times to drop the knife. Police did not identify the officer Friday.
Video of the incident taken by bystanders shows Scott lunging at the officer with the knife. The officer is seen taking multiple steps backward, but as the gap closes between them, the officer fires once and Scott falls to the ground.
