A motel manager called police about a guest behaving violently and destroying room 156. Six officers went to the motel and found the man staying in the room using a shower curtain pipe to break windows and other items. Leaking water had completely soaked the carpet. Police say that officers calmed the man down and then tried to leave the room to give him some space, but then the man hit one of the officers in the head with the pipe. The man reportedly began to swing the pipe to hit the officer a second time before the officer fired one shot, hitting the suspect in the upper torso. The man died at five days later from his injuries.
