Well, footage of the incident has hit the internet and it’s incredibly brutal.

In a Reddit video shared by u/BunnyLovr, police can be seen approaching King after he allegedly opened fire ordering him to comply and drop his weapon.

When he didn’t listen, the police opened fire on him and killed him. You can watch it in the post below.

Whether you love the police or think they should be disbanded, not complying with them once guns have been drawn is a great way to end up dead.

King had multiple officers yelling at him to comply after allegedly shooting up his work place, and he chose a different route.

I’m not a legal expert, but it’s hard to imagine this situation isn’t the textbook example of a justified shooting.

I don’t care how innocent you think you are. You can battle it out in court. When the men and women with badges, guns and the authority of the government show up, it’s time to comply.

Given the fact King allegedly shot multiple people and then tried to get into it with the police, you almost have to wonder if this was suicide by cop.

What an absolutely insane situation. Hopefully, all the officers involved are mentally okay. They clearly had no choice.
