Andre Charles Laurent (13639)

11/14/2006: Police said Trooper Kyle C. Witt followed a white Cadillac that was being driven erratically for more than a mile before the car pulled over about a mile north of the Spokane-Pend Oreille county line. When Laurent got out of the car with an AK-47-style rifle, Witt got back into his cruiser and used it to knock down the older man and push the Cadillac down an embankment. Laurent pointed the rifle at Witt as he got out of his cruiser, and the trooper opened fire with his .40-caliber H&K semiautomatic service pistol, killing Laurent.
