What is the argument going to be when an off duty officer eventually gets into a needless shootout with another off duty officer?
“They both acted appropriately to handle the situation. While some civilians were killed in the crossfire, both officers hit each other, neutralizing the active shooter threat. We’re very proud of both officers, who will be taking paid leave while we take as long as possible to investigate. Oh yeah, also, while we haven’t investigated anything yet and we know close to nothing, we can say with absolute certainty that guns were not the cause of death. Wasn’t guns. The civilians appeared to drop dead from a case of aggressive E. coli that they most likely picked up while shopping in the produce section. You all are safe now. You’re welcome.”
