Admittedly, there is a bit missing from the story. Based on what we know, a 27-year-old man was walking down an Edmonds, Washington sidewalk on a Saturday morning near a school while open-carrying his rifle. His “behavior” prompted two 911 phone calls from residents, which led to police showing up on the scene and trying to find out what he was doing walking around with a rifle. The Seattle Times reports that following a “verbal confrontation,” police decided to shoot the man. Thankfully, he’s still alive, but he is in serious condition at the hospital.
