Police: Man shot deputy with BB gun during eviction
Orange County Register ^ | 5/16/2011 | Claire Webb

LAGUNA HILLS – A man who deputies were attempting to evict from his town home last week shot at officers with a BB gun, striking one in the hand.

((snip))

Rose was found in the living room pointing a black BB gun at deputies, according to the release, which they believed was a firearm. Deputies told Rose to drop the weapon, and when he failed to do so, a deputy shot Rose with an electronic stun gun. Police previously had said Rose was found in a bedroom.

While the stun gun was being used, Rose fired a BB gun and hit one the deputies in the hand. Another deputy then fired two shots at Rose, but did not hit him.

A third deputy used an electronic stun gun a second time to subdue Rose and he was taken into custody, according to the release.

"Another deputy then fired two shots at Rose, but did not hit him."

Inside a living room, he missed twice?

Hit the range pronto, bro.

If convicted he faces up to three years in state prison.
So with one little BB gun he managed to change an eviction into a change-of-address.

What a maroon.

In most states this guys actions would get him dead.

He should by a lotto ticket and send the proceeds to that department.

They obviously need the money for more officer range time.

Cops are notoriously bad shots.

May have been aiming for a family pet that may have still been breathing.

If they believed it to be a firearm why were they tazing him? Obviously that was a bad decision. If the guy had a firearm both officers would be dead now. Besides, a BB gun or a pellet rifle are absolutely not toys; a pellet in the eye will go all the way through the brain, a couple of times. Those officers made a big mistake, IMO, assuming that an eviction is a walk in a park before they even made contact.

hahahaha! I'm waiting for the 10-bb capacity limit bill to hit the floor. Well, along with mandatory registration of course.

That seems to be the case.

May have been aiming for a family pet that may have still been breathing.

The police showed remarkable restraint in this particular case.

I guess he was planning his relocation - wishing to move into a jail cell as quickly as possible.

Maybe the cops are lying. Seems to be a lot of discrepancies in the report. Confusion about which room of the house the man was in, how a cop could have fire twice and missed at close range, why they tazed him if they believed he had a firearm. A lot of things don't add up.

He missed because the suspect was flopping around doing the big chicken after first being hit by the stun gun.

I love stories that make me laugh.

How stupid do you have to be to pop a cop with a bb.?

Sounds to me like the guy was begging for "suicide by cop"...

BB guns just don’t pack the punch they used to..

Most LEO’s have been trained to to understand and identify such situations (police assisted suicide).

Most LEO’s have likewise been trained to hit the target when they discharge their gun.

Apparently none got the a+ in class.

I saw a local LEO whom I went to school with faint at a homicide scene. We were playing cards next door, and were going to call a cop to pick up their cop.

Just cant make these things up.

He was Al Hunter. After he blew his wife's head apart all over the hallway, he kidnapped a pilot from Beverly airport and had him fly over Boston so he could shoot at fuel storage tanks.

He was a good guy, VN vet with “issues” who used to buy us beer.

He is also released from custody today.

Strange world.

The wording is unclear. Firing the weapon while he was being tased might have been an involuntary response.
If so, that could account for why tasing was tried in the first place, they knew it was a bb gun but didn’t account for any involuntary jerking on the recipient’s part.
Or he could have fired it before the thing hit, having really fast reflexes and all.
Hard to imagine someone meeting a supposed firearm threat with a taser rather than a firearm. But if so, kudos for their restraint.
For that matter, they seem to have showed some afterward, too. Too bad more don’t do so in these situations (71 shots?).
