The first role of a police officer is to protect lives and yes that even means the bad guy's. Things happen in an instant and the bad guy decides how a police officer responds. Shot dead? They shoot the guy one round goes into the house and hits the victim then they should not have shot him at all and the cop haters would be crying foul. The only way to act is resonable and in this case the WPD did what they needed to end the situation as best as it could have ended. Only non-victims cry more than the victims.
