Scott William Muntz (7247)

10/15/2012: Officers responded to a home after receiving reports of gunshots and a man threatening to harm himself. A negotiator unsuccessfully tried to speak with Muntz and contacted other family members in an effort to resolve the situation. After hearing a shot fired from inside the mobile home, officers saw Muntz open the front door with a pistol in his hand. Muntz then walked into the front yard where officers repeatedly told him to drop the weapon and show his hands. Muntz continued loading the gun before aiming it at officers, who opened fire, striking him once.
