For the NYPD’s Barney Fife(s)

All nine people wounded during a dramatic confrontation between police and a gunman outside the Empire State Building were struck by bullets fired by the two officers, police said Saturday, citing ballistics evidence.

Officer Craig Matthews shot seven times. Officer Robert Sinishtaj fired nine times, police said. Neither had ever fired their weapons before on a patrol.

The volley of gunfire felled Johnson in just a few seconds and left nine other people bleeding on the sidewalk.

I spent a good chunk of my life growing up in a town that could pass for Mayberry, hunting by 11, high school and college rifle team, completed the AMTU course (the predecessor to the Sniper School and the AMU) at Ft Benning, lugged an M21 around for eight years, and after the military spent five years in the NOPD reserve and competing in IPSC. Ron White’s spiel above is being vary generous, most metro police would be considered incompetent in any fair evaluation of their firearm skills.
