There were two big developments Monday in the case of a motorist who was shot and killed along Greenwell Springs Road Friday after a fight with a police officer. Investigators say an autopsy shows the deadly bullet was fired by a bystander, not the officer. Police also announced that no charges would be filed in the case, either against the police officer involved or the bystander who fired the fatal shot into the head of George Temple.

East Baton Rouge Sheriff's spokesman Greg Phares says Officer Brian Harrision was escorting a funeral procession Friday when he pulled Temple over and wrote him a ticket for breaking into the procession. According to Phares, that's when Temple attacked Harrison. Police say Perry Stevens was walking outside of the Auto Zone on Greenwell Springs Road when he heard Harrison yelling for help. Harrison was reportedly on his back with Temple on top of him. That's when Stevens went to his car and grabbed his .45 caliber pistol.

According to Col. Greg Phares, "[Mr. Stevens] orders Mr. Temple to stop and get off the officer. The verbal commands are ignored and Mr. Stevens fires four shots, all of which struck Mr. Temple."

Perry Stevens fired four shots into Temple's torso. Officer Harrison had already fired one shot into Temple's abdomen. With Temple still struggling with the officer, Perry continued to advance toward the scuffle.

"He again orders Mr. Temple to stop what he was doing and get off the officer. Those commands are ignored and he fires a fifth shot and that hits his head. The incident is over with, and as you know, Mr. Temple is dead."

Police are calling the shooting death justified. Perry Stevens has a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Col. Phares would not give out any more details relating to the shooting. Both Phares and Baton Rouge Police Chief Jeff LeDuff stopped short of crediting Stevens with saving the officer's life. LeDuff says the entire incident is unfortunate.

"I spoke with his father at the scene briefly," said LeDuff. "I think this is a tragic situation all around."

9 News is told George Temple has a criminal record, and Officer Harrison was involved in a shooting while employed as a prison guard in East Baton Rouge Parish, where he was suspended for three days back in 1995.

Four rounds from a .45 and he still didn't stop? Impossible. Well, maybe he used a glock instead of a 1911.

Obviously he didn't use a 1911 or the suspect would have been knocked completely off the officer when the first round impacted him.

BTW, good job.

Sounds like Perry Stevens knows his stuff...........5 shots, 5 hits with a .45.

Damn, took 5 shots from a .45 to stop that dude!
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 3:42:07 PM EDT
awesome. Kinda kills the liberal's idea of "only police need guns". That cop could have very well died if it wasn't for the bystander. Good for him

This guy absorbed 4 .45 slugs and presumably a .40 slug and kept fighting?

He was on something.

Nice job.

4 shots COM, then a CNS shot. Good job. Sounds like he kept his cool and controlled his shots.

I won't suggest this somehow proves 9mm is better...

Good shoot.
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 3:59:47 PM EDT
it sounds like the four shots were made while he was on the police officers back...so not only did he hit the badguy but he missed the officer.....somebody has to make some targets like that witha badguy on the back of someone.......
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 4:00:10 PM EDT
Damn, grit er done

Thats another reason why a 1911 isnt for me, 7 rounds is never enough.

I'd be more interested in hearing how the officer involved feels. Outstanding work Mr. Stevens! I'm sure he wasn't excited about having to do that but he did well.

Outstanding job. The CCW holder obviously took his training seriously.

<---------------------

Allow me to be the first to observe, that if he had been shooting a 9mm, the result would have been:

4 COM hits, no response, then 1 CNS hit, and dead bad guy.


Hey.....it's the same!!!!

What sucks is that if I helped Wave in NYC, i'd be at riker's right now.

Glad that guy is no longer with us.

5 shots 5 hits, with one in the head.

Thats my idea of Gun Control.

Good Job.

Good to see that the Sheriff and DA are doing the right thing and not prosecute the guy.



Whats sad about something like this happening in NYC is that there we be no good guy with a gun to save the cops ass, there would be one dead copper.

pretty good shooting to not hit the officer

He should have used a 9mm.

Sounds more like he paid attention to what happened to Mark Wilson. BTW, anyone remember Mark Wilson today???

Would it have hurt anything to thank the citizen for a job well done? That was some fine shooting, hit the target (the CRIMINAL) 5 times, no misses, did not hit the officer, and did not hit anything else not aimed at. OUT-F'n-STANDING!!! He oughta get a medal from the mayor in a televised ceremony.

They should be irritated. The shooter was obviously racist. If it were a white guy attacking the police officer, the shooter would have simply blown a whistle and called the police.

Of course it would hurt. It would hurt the cause of promoting our dependence upon government and it's stooges (and yes I know some are well meaning people who want to serve, not dominate). It would almost promote something resembling self sufficiency, even when it comes to personal safety. Oh no!!!! If everyone could take care of themselves, their budget would be slashed!!!!!

Ok,Ok....Everybody calm down. When all the facts are available, i'm sure that all will see that the bystander used that flea market knockoff .45, the .45GAP, as had he used the real deal, krout killin' .45ACP, the guy would have been cut in half by the first round!!!
