David V. Vongpramai (4886)

7/22/2009: Three officers went to the home and found Vongpramai, suicidal, with a knife in the back yard of the home on Westinghouse Street south of Tait Street, police said. They ordered him to put down the weapon, but Vongpramai instead ran to the front of the home where he was again ordered to put down the weapon. Vongpramai raised the knife over his head and moved toward one of the officers, the captain said. The 4-year veteran fired at least three shots and paramedics attended to the wounded man, but Vongpramai was pronounced dead at the home. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/2009/jul/23/bn23shoot207723/
