The officer believed the 34-year-old suspect was reaching into his pocket for a gun in the flashpoint on Wednesday in Phoenix, in which the man was shot twice in the chest after a struggle.It was subsequently found that Rumain Brisbon had only pills in his pocket. The shooting occurred when the officer went to investigate reported drug-related activity outside a convenience store.
