On an early morning Brian complained to a staff person that he wanted a pack of cigarettes and a soda. In response, the staff person called the police. When the police arrived at the home, Brian waved a metal pen at the officers. The officers shot Brian in the head and instantly killed him. The officer was placed on administrative leave for the incident but returned to work.
