Brock Nichols (9990)

1/6/2015: Officers responded to a call from a woman concerned for the safety of her child. The officers arrived at the home of Nichols, who apparently had been drinking in violation of a court order. Nichols needed to go to the bathroom and was being escorted by deputies when he went into a dark room. One officer shot Nichols after turning on the light and seeing Nichols pointing a semi-automatic handgun at him.
