When I was taking a course for my CCW in AZ, the instructor wove a tale about a police officer involved in a shooting. He told us that an officer had shot a suspect 47 times. Apparantly the suspect was a massive man high on PCP that would not go down. The officer reloaded several times - obviously. The tory goes that the officer was asked by a reporter the next day why he shot the man 47 times, the officer's reply was, "because I ran out of ammunition".

Has anyone else ever heard this? Is it true? Do you have a link to the story? his
Thanks for your help!

I dunno if its the same case without digging out my books, but there was a case where a bad guy was shot 30-some times and had to be stopped by several rounds from a 12 gauge, off the top of my head. The book had pics of the guy afterwards.

I remember a few years ago some NY City cops shot an unarmed imigrant, who couldn't understand their orders, about 40 times.

On page 215 in the Street Survival Tactics for Armed Encounters by Charles Remsberg there is a good picture and a paragraph about a subject that was attempting to rob a liquor store and was shot 33 times with a 9mm by police before he was incapacitated. I am not sure if you can obtain this book as it is a LEO only book published by Calibre Press but you may find one at a used book store.

Illinois State Police was the agency involved. It wasnt to long after they went with the S&W 39. Shotgun slug that severed his spine is what put him down.

What you are refering to is in the book called "Police Story",
This book is about tatics and training for Law Enforcement,
not about the TV show or movie, you should be able to find
the book in a large public library, it used to be only for check out
if you were LE or in Training to become LE, but now anyone can get it.

That's a less than 50% hit rate from close range against a stationary target.

NYPD police can't shoot for shit, but on the plus side they were on the best dressed list this year

Still above-average hit ratio for most LEO shootings.Remember, we dont shoot at a nice 90 degrees on to a stationary target.

Did'nt hear that one but....there was a child rapist that got out on parole here in Florida last year, he was shot 13 times before dying, the Okaloosa county Sheriff said it was the worst case of suicide he's ever seen in 25 years.!
