  7. Why would a police pull the trigger and also with no target. Didn’t even target for the leg. Investigate properly please

  8. This is just too ridiculous and Unfortunate, what will investigation do when he’s already dead. They should have shot him in the leg to restrain him from running instead of taking his life like that.
